Four beautiful stories about the spider Anangsieh by Anton de Kom, author of the famous book 'Wij Slaven van Suriname'. Anton de Kom (1898-1945) is one of the most important voices in the anti-colonial movement of the 20th century. 'Freedom fighter, resistance hero, trade unionist, activist, state and exile' on the pedestal of his statue in Amsterdam. In the 1930s, De Kom was banned from Suriname. During the Second World War he was active in the Dutch resistance. He died in a German concentration camp on 24 April 1945. In 'Anangsieh tories' Anton de Kom gives his own twist to the fairytale stories about the slender, shrewd spider.

Artwork for Neighbourhood of Commoning, a project by Dimitri van den Wittenboer & Pankaj Tiwari. They explore what ‘commons space’ can contribute to the public life in the neighbourhood and how it can be different from private and public space. For this project they invited the citizens of Altstetten, Zurich CH, to transform their private spaces such as Apartments, Garages or Gardens into a ‘commons space’ for the duration of 4 weeks. The ‘commons space’ is organised by the neighbourhood collectively and took place from the 9th of August till the 4th of September during the About Us Festival. (Dutch only).

COMMON GROUND

The second issue of Common Ground, the annual magazine of the European Cultural Foundation, created to celebrate Europe Day. Europe Day is celebrated on May 9, since on that date in 1950 a statement (the Schuman declaration) was made by French foreign minister Robert Schuman. It proposed to place French and West German production of coal and steel under one common High Authority. This organization would be open to participation of other Western European countries. This cooperation was to be designed in such a way as to create common interests between European countries which would lead to gradual political integration, a condition for the pacification of relations between them. It was the beginning of what would become our current European Union. 

Robert Schuman: ‘Europe will not be made all at once, or according to a single plan. It will be built through concrete achievements which first create a de facto solidarity.’
