BOOKS: Tools for Collective Learning

Live Book Tickets

Start your weekend with a festive BOOKS program in which we celebrate the launch of Tools for Collective Learning, a publication about our Name Change Initiative co-published by Kunstinstituut Melly with Jap Sam Books. The program is part of a weekend of celebrations featuring conversation, screening, performance and refreshments.

The evening’s BOOKS program will feature an address at 6PM by our guest of honor Rotterdam Alderman Said Kasmi, as well as the presentation of a Melly TV compilation reel, and followed by celebration with light-fare and refreshments.

This special edition of BOOKS honors the many voices who took part in the Name Change Initiative, and especially the emerging professionals of Collective Learning in Practice (CLIP). CLIP engages people from Rotterdam aged 17 to 24 in oiur work-learn program and institutional decision-making.

We also celebrate—for the first time in person—the participants of Melly TV. Produced during the lockdown, Melly TV is a three-part television series that launched our new name in January 2021. Melly TV was produced in collaboration with Lilith Magazine, Brand New Guys and broadcast in partnership with Open Rotterdam and e-flux Video.

Tools for Collective Learning is a publication that brings together multiple voices and perspectives reflecting on the institutional pathways for change of our Name Change Initiative. The publication documents the ‘Collective Learning’ methodology by which we changed our name to Kunstinstituut Melly from Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art. The book reflects on both the symbolic and structural transformations of Kunstinstituut Melly, its institutional culture, its audiences, and its ongoing mission for social responsibility and multi-vocal heritage.

Tools for Collective Learning is designed by Julie Peeters, and features contributions by Teana Boston-Mammah, Tayler Calister, Sofía Hernández Chong Cuy, Callum Dean, Rosa de Graaf, Boutaina Hammana, Michiel Huijben, Wooseok Jang, Stijn Kemper, Alex Klein, Jessy Koeiman, Prem Krishnamurthy, Rolando Vázquez Melken, Yahaira Brito Morfe, Nina Schouten, Alexander Tanazefti, Emily Turner, Aqueene Wilson, Yan Zhihan and Vivian Ziherl.
