Take Over

Chicks and the City Behind the Sheets

On Saturday 12 June the Kunsthal Auditorium will be taken over by Chicks And The City. Drawing inspiration from the exhibition Youthquake, they will treat you to a day packed with exciting discussions, photoshoots and recordings for a screening of Chicks On Screen and Silent Disco. The musical host of the afternoon is DJ So Fetsay.

In their podcasts, the Chicks interview a number of guests for some very intimate discussions. The Chicks themselves also strip off one layer after another to get closer to themselves and to the heart of the matter, Special guests include the 80-year-old muse Joyce Kaesberry, the Miss Netherlands nominee Rosalie Spee, and mother and daughter Lya Pijpers and Natasja Morales.

Lay yourself bare!

The public can keep their clothes on, but won’t be able to escape from no-holds-barred questions. What does growing old mean for you? When are you really old? And when are you young? What would you like to say to your younger self? How important is fashion for you, and what do you want to express with the clothes you wear? And do you hide a part of yourself in your choice of clothing? Be prepared!

Chicks And The City

The media entrepreneur Natasja Morales thought up the concept for Chicks and the City (CATC) in 2004: a radio participation project for girls and young women in Rotterdam. Now, 17 years on, CATC has become a broad media platform. Items are made, content is produced and activities are organised in a variety of ways and using various live and online media. The project is made by and for girls, young women and everyone who is interested in the concerns of this segment. The Chicks of CATC work on talk shows, podcasts, social media, YouTube and TV series, livestreams, media workshops and educational events.

CATC is a talent coaching project in which girls and young women between the ages of 15 and 25 with their roots in the city learn through practice. This Kunsthal LIVE Take Over has been programmed and organised by Chicks And The City under the guidance of the artist Roxette Capriles.
