No Access shows twenty contemporary video works, data visualisations, media works, animations and interactive educational games with visual stories about refugees from different perspectives.
During the Nederlandse Dansdagen, choreographers Roshanak Morrowatian, Mohamed Yusuf Boss and Kenzo Kusuda, who each came to the Netherlands with their own story, will participate in the Viewmaster Projects exhibition for one day. The visitors witness how they react to the theme and impact of the video works with their improvisation capacity and expressiveness of their body language.
An immersive exhibition on Border Control, Border Conflicts and Migration
The location on itself is exceptional, but it adds even more to the works since it has a strong connection with the loaded theme. The performances will be held in the former Cold War Headquarters of NATO in the marl quarries of the Maastricht Cannerberg. During the Cold War, 24-hour surveillance from here closely monitored all movements behind the Iron Curtain. In 1992, NATO left this nuclear bomb-proof complex, which had previously been subject to the State Secrets Act since 1956. Now for the first time you can roam freely in part of the corridor system without getting lost.
Roshanak Morrowatian on her contribution to the project: “Introducing the theme, the location, the history and link to the current situation, and then introducing dance, it is precisely in this combination where I get inspired and feel the urgency to get moving.”
Please note: The exhibition starts on Thursday 15 September and can be seen until Sunday 13 November. The above performances can only be seen on October 1. You can visit the location at any time, between 14:00 and 17:00.
