A platform for interaction between art and science
The Living Art Lab comprises multiple components:
Cityscapes Artistic Research
Cityscapes is working in collaboration with members of the community, scientists, and artists to research four topics closely related to Marineterrein: Latent Space, Urban Ecology, Inclusive City, and Hacking Heritage.
The Buitenbroedplaats New Art programme provides space to artists looking for freedom to experiment, test, and do things differently. Sustainable, future-proof development of Marineterrein requires new insights and approaches. Buitenbroedplaats appeals to young, creative talent and new and innovative artists, who would normally find it difficult to find space in the city for collaborative thought about the future of the city and the issues faced by cities around the world.
An important part of Buitenbroedplaats is its solid grounding and connection with the city and surrounding neighbourhoods. Marineterrein has long been an enclosed enclave. At Buitenbroedplaats, investigations are taking place into how Marineterrein can retain its unique character and, at the same time, be an inclusive part of Amsterdam. How can local residents and Amsterdam residents more widely, of different backgrounds and ages, contribute to development of Marineterrein?
Amsterdam University of the Arts (AHK) is working at different locations at Marineterrein on art education, experiments at the interface of art and science, and in particular on promoting interaction between different disciplines of art.
The Living Art Lab is working with cultural initiatives who are guests at Marineterrein, such as Steim – macroTONE, Amsterdam Light Festival, and the Media Architectuur Biennale, towards an exhibition in 2021.
The Living Art Lab is open to relevant artistic experiments and activities at the interface of art and science that dovetail with the development focus and values of Marineterrein. The Schietbaan is available for this purpose.
