#4 Keti Koti Westerpark X Buro Stedelijk

with Atelier Code Noir and Frank Creton

EN

Every year on the 1st of July we commemorate and celebrate the abolition of slavery: Keti Koti. Keti Koti means “Broken Chains” in the Surinamese language Sranantongo. This year, several local residents in and around the Westerpark in Amsterdam, decided to work together and organize a month of events leading up to Keti Koti. Buro Stedelijk collaborates with them on a month-long manifestation in the Meterhuisje in the Westerpark and several windows by kunsttraject in the Staatsliedenbuurt.

For this manifestation #4 Keti Koti Westerpark X Buro Stedelijk we collaborated with Atelier Code Noir by Lelani Lewis and visual artist Frank Creton. Together we investigate ways of celebrating and mourning through food, its genealogies, and our colonial past. Lelani Lewis invites visitors into an interactive learning experience delving into the Caribbean cuisine and its histories.

In this manifestation we highlight some of Frank Creton’s works in which people as well as ingredients have a lead role. We combine the narratives around food with the people Creton represents in his works. Manifestation #4 opens on June 4 and closes after Keti Koti on July 2nd. During the weeks leading up to July 1, many different people from the neighborhood decided to activate the space by organizing different gatherings around commemoration, celebration and food.

Manifestation #4 invites you in and binds through food and local community.

NL

Jaarlijks wordt op 1 juli de afschaffing van de slavernij herdacht en gevierd: Keti Koti. Keti Koti betekent ‘Ketenen Verbroken’ in de Surinaamse taal Sranantongo. Dit jaar organiseren verschillende buurtbewoners in en rond het Amsterdamse Westerpark gezamenlijk een maand vol evenementen in aanloop naar Keti Koti. Buro Stedelijk werkt met hen samen aan de maandlange manifestatie bij het Meterhuisje in Westerpark en diverse etalages van kunsttraject in de Staatsliedenbuurt.

Voor deze manifestatie #4 Keti Koti Westerpark X Buro Stedelijk werken wij samen met Atelier Code Noir en beeldend kunstenaar Frank Creton. Samen verkennen we manieren van vieren en rouwen via eten, de genealogieën daarvan en ons koloniale verleden. Lewis nodigt bezoekers uit voor een interactieve leerervaring die de Caribische keuken en haar geschiedenissen verkent.

In deze manifestatie belichten we enkele werken van Creton waarin zowel mensen als ingrediënten centraal staan. We verbinden de verhalen rond voedsel met de mensen die Creton in zijn werken vertegenwoordigt. Manifestatie #4 opent op 4 juni en sluit na Keti Koti op 2 juli. In de weken voorafgaand aan 1 juli zullen verschillende mensen uit de buurt de ruimte activeren door middel van verschillende bijeenkomsten rondom de thema’s herdenken, vieren en eten.

Manifestatie #4 nodigt je uit en verbindt door eten en lokale gemeenschap.

Every year on the 1st of July we commemorate slavery and celebrate the abolition of slavery: Keti Koti. Since we believe that Keti Koti should be a national holiday, we are closed on the 1st of July. We asked Lydiënne Albertoe to design a graphic work for this particular occasion. The work is placed on the door of our Central Space and the windows of the Studio Space.
