UPCOMING EVENTS & CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS

2021:

Open Archief


The Input Party is collaborating next year with the project of Open Archief: a multifaceted, collaborative research project that explores the beauty and innovation that can be inspired by making archival material accessible to artists for creative reuse.

The project will give three creative practitioners the opportunity to create a new, autonomous media work within a six-month working period, using the public and digitized collections of Het Nieuwe Instituut (HNI), the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision (Sound and Vision) and the International Institute of Social History (IISH).

September 2020:

The Input Party visited the Institute of Social History


The Input Party has collaborated with the IISG in Amsterdam. The institute has accommodated an Input Party at the institute and provided us with part of their photo collection as input.

The first part of this event was held in March 2020. We did a tour of the archive and were presented with boxes filled with beautiful photo material. From this, each participant selected seven images.

In part 2 the participants brought their seven images from the IISG archive and complemented them with seven images from their own referential image archives. This material guided us through a variety of interesting conversations.
