BORGERHOUT


HIPSTER / MUSLIM BORGERHOUT:

Zowel het begrip ‘hipster’ als ‘moslim’ hebben hun faam status behaald in de media. In grote getale wordt over deze ‘subgroepen’ gesproken. Ze zijn ware containerbegrippen geworden waarbij de daadwerkelijke definitie is verwaterd.
Daarbij heerst de neiging om vooral over hen te spreken dan daadwerkelijk met hen.

Met HIPSTER / MUSLIM: BORGERHOUT willen wij op een verrassende manier een podium bieden aan zes jonge mannen, hen zelf het woord geven en het publiek een inkijk geven in de visie van deze nieuwe generatie.

A collaboration between GET ME / BIRD.

Against All Tides is a humble tribute to our own Rotterdam-based promoter Guido van Dieren. Someone characterised by the fact that he always moved against the tide.

Known for his well-appreciated 360 DEGREES and ALL EYES ON:club events, which paid-off in 2015 when he won the audience award for best club event. With his endless dedication for quality music, sophisticated taste and always on the forefront of new musical movements, one could easily describe him as a true music curator. Someone who not only likes to entertain his public, but also educates a new generation audiophiles.

Therefore we decided to place his job into a broader context and got into a conversation with Europe finest selection of influentials in the music scene including LeFtO, Gilles Peterson, K15, Henry Wu, Kees Funkaholic Heus, and our own 22tracks. We talked together about the changing music landscape, and how the role of a so-called ‘gatekeeper’, someone who selects, curates, and defines, is becoming more and more important.

The project focuses on Amsterdam-West, a working class neighbourhood, populated mostly by Muslims and hipsters.

WHITE PRIVILEGE


Acting like the world is white, which is actually just 1/5 of the world population and with consisting ideologies and practices that seek to justify the unequal distribution of privileges and rights among a smaller group, we only know it is just a matter of time before this system will break down.

Acting like the world is white, which is actually just 1/5 of the world population and with consisting ideologies and practices that seek to justify the unequal distribution of privileges and rights among a smaller group, we only know it is just a matter of time before this system will break down.

At April 2015 the Times showed a timeline of comparable incidents as Trayvon Martin, already just from 2014 till 2015 they could present 13 more similar cases. Incidents that show structural injustices within the legal system of the US.

After the neighbourhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman fatally shoots the unarmed 17-yearold Trayvon Martin, the #blacklivesmatters activism movement stood up. They protest against the so-called white privilege and the structural racism that undeniable is part of our society in with white receives several benefits from just their skin colour.

Trying to maintain this privilege because of the positive sense of benefits, we choice for denial. Perhaps because most of us don’t even know better.

GHOSTPOET


The London based artist, Ghostpoet, just released his third and latest album called Shedding Skin. Besides the intriguing title, cutting edge cover and alluring appearance, his lyrics made clear he is more than an artist. He is an observer. Analysing the things he sees happing around him, reflecting on life, and not scared to be honest in sharing his perceptions.

GET ME went to Amsterdam, where he was preparing his show in Bitterzoet. We talked about his reflection on his music, the Zeitgeist, London and life.

NEW RELIGION


While our Western government mostly seems to be occupied with de-popularizing religious glorifications, curiosity for holy activities gains. Searching in our lives for substance like the alchemist’s new gold, more than ever religion seems to confuse us.

NEW RELIGION


While our Western government mostly seems to be occupied with de-popularizing religious glorifications, curiosity for holy activities gains. Searching in our lives for substance like the alchemist’s new gold, more than ever religion seems to confuse us.

This quarter GET ME will focus on religion.

Growing up within the scheme of rational thinking as the fundament of our reasoning, it is quite striking how spirituality, the enlightened partner of religion, reclaims the youngster again.

As a reaction on our determinedness to find balance between body and mind, healthy food concerns, yoga temples and alternative therapy centres pop up like mushrooms. But there is more than these single individualistic approaches on finding mind peace. Endless packed-back-to-basic festivals, coffee gatherings and what-not collectives, our leisure seems to be mostly spend on finding a certain unity.

So we might need faith now more than ever because our ideologies are obscuring the fact that we have more things in common than conflict.

The next couple of weeks we will look in to escapism and music as spiritual experience, how the Western society consider technology as their holy grail, our religious fetishism with imagines, and how popularity rises under young people to convert.

THEME 1 / NEW IDENTITY


“In our real lives, we constantly struggle between who we think we are, who others think we are and who people think we think we are. The real self is saddled somewhere in the overlap between these three circles. ” -  Carl Rogers

THEME 2 / NEW FEMINISM


It has been a movement mainly defined by a hash tag. Phenomenon for our generation: while claiming the feminist identity, it may not translate to action immediately. As the feminism label is getting more fluent, it is time to redefine femininity.
