Thinktank Concept
The Thinktank is a proposal for a groupware, an online collaborative environment, which offers practitioners from the artistic, social and political field online spaces for group work. During its research phase the Thinktank invites artists, architects, designers, programmers and people from the social and cultural field to envision with us what this working environment should consist of.
As part of this research we’re aiming to further our insights into modes, dynamics and values at play in collaborative work, investigating how they can be facilitated by virtual structures. Thinktank 0.1 has now opened its office in Public Space With A Roof, an artist-run space in Amsterdam. Between Sunday the 19th and Sunday the 26th of February we are inviting participants to join conversations around specific aspects of (online) collaboration in the project space and via a virtual communication platform. Throughout this week we will publish regular newsletters.

Please join us through the platform www.think-tank.nl and in the project space Public Space With A Roof.

Patrizia Donà is a successor of the long family tradition originating from the island of Murano, Venice. During her childhood, she used to spend many summers in a family manufacture, helping putting together crystal parts of Venetian chandeliers, whose production is a unique and unsurpassed process. So Patrizia grew up surrounded by artisanal works, in an atmosphere where striving for perfection and continuous improvement came to her naturally. Later in life, Patrizia Donà moved to Rotterdam where she studied Fashion Design at the Willem de Kooning Academy. She graduated Cum Laude in 2006. Read more


INTERVIEW: HEIKE-ANGELA BALTRUWEIT

Interviews | October 12, 2020

I am looking for abstract compositions in my surroundings to capture them photographically. The objects and situations are neither changed, arranged nor manually illuminated, nor are they subsequently edited on the computer, even the detail is identical to the shot. All pictures are 'Pure Photography'. I see my surroundings as a 'natural exhibition space'. I find works of art on the pavement, on building walls, in the water and in factory buildings. These works of art are fixations of the moment and therefore difficult to reproduce. A different angle of view, a changed incidence of light, and the colours, bizarrely changed forms have disappeared. Read more
