Something beautiful and strong is about to see it’s light; Onze Roeping, On Joyful Militancy by Mercedes Azpilicueta.
In a performative walk, Mercedes Azpilicueta’s Onze Roeping, On Joyful Militancy, goes back to the small streets and canals of the Jordaan to re-activate a place in history, that of the Aardappeloproer (1917), the women-led potato uprisings that took place exactly 105 years ago.
How can we look at bridges, barricades and carrier-bags, if not as material infrastructures of care and solidarity?
