This February The Palace opens it’s doors to Berlin for a one-night-only Fasching Feast for the eyes, ears, stomach and mind.

In light of this, The Palace invites emerging artists, creative minds and party people alike, to experience a taste of our world. The Palace Kitchen invites you to join them at the table and delve into a 3 course culinary gorging of the surreal.

EXHIBITION, HOTEL EUROPA, CONCORDIA, ENSCHEDE, NL
In de expositie Hotel Europa presenteren jonge makers zich naast gevestigde videokunstenaars. Vijftig jaar geleden kwam het eerste draagbare videosysteem op de markt. En nu iedereen met een smartphone een filmpje kan maken, en nu de mixed mediakunst hoogtij voert, voelt videokunst pur sang als een terugkeer naar de roots. Niet eerder presenteerde Concordia een expositie met alleen videokunst. ‘We vinden het belangrijk om de diversiteit aan beeldende kunst te laten zien. Videokunstenaars kunnen ons in een wereld vol bewegende beelden en mediageweld, nog steeds de schoonheid van dit fenomeen laten zien. Doel is om de aandacht weer op het medium vestigen, om film niet alleen een gebruiksvoorwerp te laten zijn,’ aldus Petra Boonstra, programmeur beeldende kunst bij Concordia. De expositie wordt zaterdagmiddag 27 augustus geopend, Langestraat 56, Enschede.
SCREENING ”FOYER”, LONDON BIENNALE MANILA POLLINATION: SYNCHRONISATIONS – SYNCOPATIONS, MANILA, PHILIPPINES
The London Biennale Manila Pollination aims to challenge and transform the notion of the art world ‘biennale’ as a large state or corporate-sponsored event, with artists selected by curators based on their geographical location, citizenship, nationality, race and ethnicity, by throwing open borders and encouraging a more intimate and community-based dialogue between the artists and audiences. The first ever pollination in Manila, Philippines, will take place in September 2016. It explores built, temporary, and imagined architecture for sharing culture and inter-connectedness. It is organised by artists Josephine Turalba and Steph Palallos. There will be various exhibitions and live events in different venues in Rome as well, throughout the month of May 2016. Throughout the succeeding month of June 2016 there will more exhibitions and events in London, England. The film ”Foyer” will be shown in 98B COLLABoratory, Escolta Manila, Philippines.
SCREENING ”FOYER”, TRANSART TRIENNALE BERLIN 2016: THE IMPERCEPTIBLE SELF, UFERSTUDIOS, BERLIN, DE

Provoking, testing, debating, playing and running with the theme coined by philosopher Rosi Braidotti – “The Imperceptible Self”; this Transart Triennale will open up spaces for sharing and experiencing creative practices driven by questions of how the peripatetic, nomadic states of contemporary existence negotiate “thresholds of sustainability” via ideas of the subject-in-becoming; ego-less identities; otherness; collective horizons and the spaces in between. The New York and Berlin Transart Triennale events launch Transart Institute’s three year research theme “The Imperceptible Self” at Uferstudios, Badstrasse 41A (Gate 1), Berlin. The Triennale will culminate in a dedicated issue of ELSE journal to be published in December 2016.
