The Hmm @ Framer Framed
Wed 12 February

Doors 19:30 Start 20:00

We’re rolling back into the new year, and for our first event of 2020 we’re excited to be hosted at Framer Framed in their beautiful new exhibition space. Researcher, anthropologist, and community collaborator Rita Ouédraogo, from the Research Center for Material Culture will be helping us put together a very special program.

Ambrien Rukhsar Moeniralam
It began as a single Instagram account in NYC, aimed at raising public awareness about the pervasiveness of street harassment. It has since spread into an international movement, and 17 year old Ambrien is leading the way in Amsterdam as the founder of @catcallsofAms. Ambrien is a student at the ROC van Amsterdam, where she is studying Media and Editing, and she is using her Instagram platform to denormalize catcalling. She’ll be joining us for The Hmm to talk about her account, what she’s doing with it, and why she thinks it is necessary. Link

Ruben Pater
Ruben finds himself being a designer at a time when more design is last thing the world needs. Until more ethical approaches present themselves, he designs, writes, and teaches at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. Under the name Untold Stories, Pater creates visual narratives which support solidarity, justice, and equality. His work often starts as a collaboration with other disciplines to create new perspectives on complex social and political issues, and they reach a wider audience through publications, installations, interactive media, or film. Ruben will be joining us for The Hmm to talk about ‘Politiek boeit me niet’ (I don’t care about politics), a ten-part series on youth and politics which will be published on Instagram this year.
