When one of the most popular pieces of contemporary art in their collection is restored for the first time, the conservation department of the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, was faced with a smelly challenge. How to recreate the smell of the famous and popular piece ‘The Beanery’ by Edward Kienholz.
Edward Kienholz provided the museum with an inspirational ‘smell’ jar, in which he probably used his own pee to get the correct smell for his artpiece, a mixture of grease, pee and cigarette smoke. But how to recreate this, well the Stedelijk uses ammonia these days.

“Als onderdeel van haar eerste lustrum programmeert SPUI25 in september en oktober een bijzondere reeks onder de titel ‘Inspiratie-over de grens!’. In wisselende samenstelling praten wetenschappers en kunstenaars over de kruisbestuivingen tussen hun vakgebieden. Waar zijn er raakvlakken, en waar liggen de grenzen? Hoe werkt inspiratie eigenlijk, en is dat voor een wetenschapper anders dan voor een kunstenaar? Wat heeft wetenschap van kunst te leren, en vice versa?
Als academisch-cultureel centrum slaat SPUI25 al vijf jaar een brug tussen de wetenschappelijke wereld en die van de culturele praktijk in de breedste zin. Ook in deze lustrumreeks worden de dwarsverbanden en grensgebieden opgezocht, om zo tot nieuwe en verrassende perspectieven te komen.
Maandag 24 september: Ed Spanjaard en Abram de Swaan
Woensdag 26 september: Henk van Os
Maandag 8 oktober: Sarah Vanhee en Micha Hamel”
The TodaysArt Festival is looking for unwanted household items for a special project on the Spuiplein. The German architect and artist collective Raumlaborberlin will build a huge pavilion out of all the collected stuff. The pavilion, called ‘The Vortex’ will be created from old household items discarded by the people of The Hague. The ‘Vortex’ will also incorporate furniture from cultural institutions that will cease to exist after 2012 due to the budget cuts by the Dutch government. The building resembles a black hole, a vortex that draws everything in, serving as a symbol for the transient nature of our society. The construction will be realized in collaboration with Refunc from The Hague, which already proved that you can build all sorts of fantastic things from trash during previous editions of TodaysArt.
The Vortex will host the Pip Bar and a podium where you can dance until midnight to the music of various live acts and DJs. From Wednesday 12 September until Sunday 16 September, you can bring your unwanted household items to the TodaysArt containers on the Turfmarkt, opposite the Albert Heijn. Do you want your old table or closet to become part of a phenomenal work of art? Then drop your stuff off this week!

Communicating the Museum is a major international conference connecting the art world. Each year the event gathers communications professionals from over 2,500 organisations from 40 countries worldwide. The event takes place in a different cultural city each year.
Communicating the Museum was founded in 2000 by Corinne Estrada, CEO of communications agency Agenda, alongside the V&A’s Damien Whitmore, at the time Director of Communications at Tate. Their vision was to bring together arts and communications professionals from all over the world and provide a platform for networking and debate. The event is widely recognised as a rare opportunity for peers from across the globe to meet, exchange ideas, be inspired by experts from outside industries and be updated on current issues and trends.
Our goal: to share ideas that you can take back to work on Monday morning. We believe that the art world can only benefit from discussion, debate and exchange. Each year our programme looks at new trends, success stories, marketing tools and best practice. Over the course of two days we present a range of discussion platforms, from keynote speeches to seminars and debates. We also run workshops where delegates can pick up new skills and learn how to put them to use.
Past speakers have included Amit Sood, Group Marketing Manager at Google Art Project, London (CTM11); Nadine Thomson, Director of Communications at the English National Opera (CTM10); Simon McQuiggan, Managing Partner at Muse (CTM10); Laura Pollini, CEO Fabrica, Benetton Group Communication Research Centre, Venice (CTM08); and Thomas Girst, Head of Culture Communications, BMW Group, Germany (CTM06).

A drone crashes in a backyard in a suburb of a city somewhere in the borderlands of the American Southwest. Various characters, all played by Crandall, become involved in the crash in different ways. A detective goes in search of its cause, and a trucker/cowboy hunting for downed drones along the border enters the picture, as do a firefighter, a drone hobbyist and other local residents. The downed drone becomes a destabilizing force in the neighborhood and inside the characters’ heads. Crandall masterfully illuminates the problems and possibilities of contemporary drone technology without taking a position. The monologues will be supplemented by live images of drones, which will fly through the room, above the Witte de Withstraat and elsewhere during the performance.
Crandall about Unmanned: “Rather then taking a conventional analytical approach, the work is performed live as ‘philosophical theater’: a blend of performance art, political allegory, philosophical speculation, and intimate reverie.”
Unmanned has never before been performed outside the United States or accompanied by live images. The performance will link theater, technology and the street, in keeping with the theme of this year’s Wereld van Witte de With festival: Who owns the street? Unmanned also relates to the Arminius debate center’s Grote Droneshow (“The Big Drone Show”), taking place on Saturday, September 15. The event will feature a camera drone demonstration and a debate on the abilities and dangers of drones: What are they capable of doing, and what are they allowed to do? After the debate, visitors can see Unmanned at V2_ (admission not included in debate ticket price).
Unmanned is Co-Directed by Bryan Santiago.
Jordan Crandall lives and works in San Diego and Los Angeles. He is known for his work as an artist and performer and publishes theoretical writings on new technology: jordancrandall.com
Performance times: Friday 14 September (VIPs and guests only), Saturday 15 September: 22:30 (following the Arminius debate), Sunday 16 September: 15:00.
Location: V2_, Eendrachtsstraat 10, Rotterdam
Performances last approximately an hour and will be conducted in English. Tickets cost €5 and are available during the festival or online in the V2_ store.
