Paul Kooiker kiest werk voor tweede Slideluck Potshow

Op 14 januari vindt in Pakhuis De Zwijger in Amsterdam de tweede Slideluck Potshow plaats, deze keer met Paul Kooiker als curator. Het evenement combineert het zelf maken en meenemen van gerechten met het kijken naar slideshows met muziek.
De Engelse oproep:

After a successful introduction of Slideluck Potshow in the summer of 2011, Amsterdam will have its second food & photography event on January 14, 2012 in Pakhuis de Zwijger, curated by Paul Kooiker.

Last June Amsterdam followed the footsteps of cities such as New York, Paris, London, São Paolo, Barcelona, Rio de Janeiro and Berlin and hosted a slideshow and an enormous potluck dinner, consisting of the home cooked signature dishes of audience members. National newspaper De Volkskrant wrote about the first Amsterdam edition that the slideshow had been ‘re-established’. And now, it is time for the second edition!

Slideluck Potshow is a New York City-based, non-profit arts organization that provides an opportunity for artists and arts-appreciators to gather around food, friends, and photography for an unforgettable night.

The evening begins with a couple hours of mingling and dining on the home-cooked delights of those who attend, and then the lights are dimmed, the crowd is hushed, and a spectacular slideshow with photoseries of 30 photographers commences.

Curator for this second edition is Dutch visual artist Paul Kooiker, award winner of the Prix de Rome and the A. Roland Holst Prize. Kooiker’s work has been exhibited widely in the Netherlands and abroad. He has published a number of books and a bi-monthly photo journal curated by himself and gallerist Willem van Zoetendaal. Paul Kooiker will select slideshows from artists in the Netherlands and abroad, out of a wide range of photography genres. He will make a selection from the Open Call for Entry and add photographers of his choice. Photojournalists, fashion and fine-art photographers all present work alongside one another in a relaxed and spirited atmosphere.

Former SLPS-curator Edie Peters? picked work from Morad Bouchakour, Erik Kessels, Kadir van Lohuizen, Iwan Baan and many others. Internationally, contributions from Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, Gregory Crewdson, Spencer Tunick and Martin Parr have been part of the programme.


For the Open Call, you are welcome to send in proposals before December 31, 24:00 (Amsterdam time). We are seeking cohesive, creative, and thought-provoking submissions. Participants are encouraged to take creative risks, in terms of content and presentation. Submissions will be collected online in advance of the slideshow. Cutting-edge multimedia presentations are welcomed and all shows must be accompanied by music, commentary, or other audio surprises. Presentations are limited to five minutes or less. Those who will be part of the final selection will be informed shortly after the deadline.

For submission guidelines please visit the Slideluck Potshow website. There is no submission fee. The deadline for SLPS AMS submissions is Saturday December 31st, 2011 midnight.

So start flipping through your favorite recipes with last edition’s stamppotballetjes, homemade sushi and stinging-nettle muffins in mind… We look forward to seeing all your artwork and to see you and yours on January 14th. Spread the word! Good times guaranteed.

Warm regards,

Wouter Kalis, Nadine Maas and Corinne de Korver
