Departures x Input Party

In the context of the exhibition Departures, MAMA Rotterdam hosted an Input Party on Sunday October 10.
During this Input Party we investigated themes running through the exhibition such as freedom of movement, disproportioned relationships, departures and borders.
By using images as our navigation we discussed the participants use of images, their archives and their references.

Summer 2021:


In June of 2021 the Input Party launched the new series Footnotes. In this section of our website we invite inspiring people from the Input Party community to reflect on the artist’s image archive and how found footage can infiltrate the artistic proces.

For our second Footnote we invited curator and photo analist Frank van der Stok to contribute to our platform. Van der Stok submerged himself in the extensive photo collection of the Library of Congress and extracted four photo collections from the archive. In this collections, and in an additional text, van der Stok offers a new perspective on these photographs almost forgotten.
