Broedplaats a.k.a. Breeding Ground a.k.a. Brutplatz
[Middle English breden, from Old English brdan. See bhreu- in Indo-European
A physical or conceptual space of experiment, evolving ideas, visions
and utopia, challenge of present social and political norms, innovation,
irritation, subversion, controversion, critic, fantasy;
Inherently unconformist to or questioning established value-and power
sytems and social behaviour rules; therefore should be considered inherently
political, not commercially calculable, transcultural,-disciplinary, often
complicated, unpopular and artistic. see image
SEEN: Possible guest appearance in February 2002 at a symposia
(held by the Vereniging Poortgebouw and Groen Links) where the uncertain
futures of the Poortgebouw, Baroeg and WORM were discussed under the name
cultural breeding grounds.
Broedplaats has probably been abducted by cultural mutineers in the Rotterdam
area. It is likely in danger to be assimilated into the commercial language
of club-sector podia and other embedded networks. Observed
rhetoric abuse include so far: (night) club, bar, venue-podia, start-up
company in the AV and event-managment/marketing sector.
Of_Cors, now(+wow)adays, its All About money.
PLANNED COURSE OF ACTION: Do not use the word Broedplaats anymore especially in combination with matters of art and culture in Rotterdam. Because of the present high-risk alert the WHY Konsulat advises authentic cultural breeding grounds who are not afraid of the dirt, to use the following surrogate as temporary disguise:
broodplaats, broekplaats, broedselplaats, bruutplaats, brdplts, bloedplaats...
Negligent or accidental usage or practice of "broedplaats" may result
in an security camera from the apathetic SCHOON, HEEL en VEILIG regime
or/and a Powerpoint inspired presentation of a cultural entrepreneur in
your breeding ground.
