Rotterdamse Raad voor Kunst en Kultur
 

Despite everybody else's surprise, to me it is no surprise at all that CBK director Ton de Vos is handed the nodding-off-on-the-job award of becoming the new director of the Rotterdam Kulturkammer, to be based in the heart of the prestigeous Kunstas in the Witte de Withstraat. MORE

The Rotterdam Squat Unregister
 

The city of Rotterdam wants to make it harder for certain forms of illegal renting to exist and will only accept your data in the future when you have an identity card, an orgininal contract and a letter with permission from the owner that you live there. This would mean that squatters could not register in the city hall in the future. MORE

The Veilig Matrix
  Supervision3000 Link: ALERT GROUP
 

Browsing through the links of participants in the November 20-22 ALLES VOOR UW VEILIGHEID Beurs at the AHOY! Rotterdam, we found the Alert Group. On our link list, we have some other security agency websites but this one is breath-taking. Follow the “Flash Intro” link on the home page and discover what industrial drum & bass musicians have for career alternatives in the Netherlands! Terminator-esque aesthetics are decontextualized from their dystopian critique to decorate yet another opportunistic private security agency. Once again, behind the scenes we have a group of “innovative” young graphic designers and musicians devoting their talents towards greater social control.

Congratulations Pager-Productions! You need our SuperVision!

Stasi for better living:
The All-Seeing Eye of Rotterdam
 

At first I naively thought this was similar to the Big Brother award, a bronze Orwellian boot stamping on a head, given in disdain to agencies and corporations that trample on human rights and privacy. The Eye of Rotterdam is a masonic pyramid with an all-seeing eye on top like Poindexter’s Total Information Awareness logo. But now I believe, to my horror, that this “prize” is awarded by the city of Rotterdam to citizens who snitch on neighbors, not with irony, but as a token of appreciation! Do we then have in Rotterdam an informal Stasi network forming? Unfortunately, I believe so.

Meer Blauw op Straat
 

over een paar jaar
houdt de ene helft van de bevolking
de andere in de gaten;
uniformen domineren het straatbeeld
onder het waakzaam oog van camera's
maar toch blijft het gezellig

Family Tales of the Canadian Security Intelligence Service
 

Here is a burnt Canadian offering: ...upon returning to Toronto, to the glory of her anarchist buddies, she began to notice small irregularities in her well-established routine. Government official types knocking on her door, or showing up at the radio station where she did a show; just to confirm this or that. Since when did they come to you to confirm anything? (Unless you’re on the dole, that is ...) It comes to her consciousness that the same tan-coloured cube van has been parked in front of her apartment, seemingly, when she things about it, for weeks...

In Search of the Suspicious
 

Give us Liberty or give us death, ready to crash and burn, in search of a safe haven; if paradise is half as nice.

Social Engineering
 

Social engineering with a human face. Everyone except me knows exactly why he is here. The life hierarchy is transparent, an ant farm between two plates of glass. There is no unemployment office in this town, no old folks home either. The common workers sleep in barracks. If they lose their job they lose their bed. In the long subarctic winter the human moles digging the underground powerhouses see the sun just once a week. The pay is fabulous and there’s nothing to spend it on.

Blauw blijft
 

Den Haag—The Blauwe Aanslag, the biggest and oldest squat in the Netherlands, has been ontruimt en gesloopt to make place for a wider street. Through their homelessness, the members of the Blauwe Aanslag now signifigantly contribute to Meer Blauw(e) op Straat.

Rotterdam wordt steeds onveiliger
 

Waarom "Schoon, veilig en heel"? Waarom "meer blauw op straat", beveiliging en toezicht? Waar liggen de werkelijke problemen? Met de volgende statistiek uit 2002, van binnengekomen meldingen bij de Meldkamer van de Politie Rotterdam Rijnmond, licht ik een tipje van de sluier op... VIEW FULL REPORT

Art Axis (Kunst-as) Rotterdam
 

It was getting dark when I arrived at the Witte de Withstraat. Almost there, still ununiformed, within one minute I was confronted with two policemen on horses, four RET controleurs, and two security guards putting up fences to keep the cars from entering the Witte de Withstraat. Which was odd, because it is a one way street and the 'no entry for cars' sign was still there. But all in all, the street was well occupied with security people (and portable toilets - for a change). VIEW FULL REPORT

De Wereld van Witte de With
(the World of White-Washing a street)
 

CLICK IMAGES TO ENLARGE

Excursion with Agent Sonja (finally!). Fenced, controlled and sponsored liveliness with a time limit of a governmentally developed former “no-go street”. The civilian Hans Kombrink amongst the many-people people. A police squad every 20 meters.

We miss to get one of the hundred free copies of the kunst bookazine “Container” for ShowroomMAMA-Roodkapje-Rotterdam Festival-Gemeente Rotterdam style sheets. After the permitted noise of a punk band, we entered the opening scenography in TENT. Artists inbreed’s friendly suspiciously networking hub. Sonja detects acquaintances of hers who stare but would not come over to say hello to her. Inside the art-pit, it is detested (“Gestapo?”) what is accepted without complaint out in the city. We are conspicuous but in an “uncool” way–we bring something inside which should better stay outside. People of WORM, Sheep Entertainment and one curious individual dared to stand and chat with us.
