Landscaped Furniture by Rik Maarsen

Please note: Dutch will be the main language during this programme, unless international guests are being interviewed.

On the last Sunday of April, Kamera Kultura will focus on the elections for the European Parliament. What is the impact of this parliament on us as Europeans? Presenter Jellie Brouwer will talk to expert guests on the subject (keep an eye on this site for names and more information). And there will be the usual ingredients for a successful Kamera Kultura: inspirational discussions, a column by a prominent writer, live music and a delicious assorted brunch at Juni Café.

European elections are due to take place at the end of May. How do these elections affect us as Europeans? Why are they important? Jellie will raise these questions with a person who knows the answers better than anyone: Kati Piri. She has been representing the Dutch Labour Party in the European Parliament since 1 July 2014. This Dutch politician of Hungarian descent is highly praised for her work on migration issues and her influence as a Turkish rapporteur. Two years ago, she was ranked eleventh on the list of most important Euro-parliamentarians, compiled by the Brussels newspaper Politico.

Rik Maarsen
calls himself a ‘circular designer’. The designer, who graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven last year, puts his social involvement into practice in a range of different projects. One of them is entitled Landscaped Furniture: furniture made from Dutch agricultural waste. At the end of its serviceable life, the furniture is simply returned to the ground it originally came from. It is a way of looking after the landscape, rather than exhausting it for the sake of production. Jellie will talk to Rik about this work and ambitions.

Joost Oomen is a poet, writer, performer, musician and programme maker. This versatile multitasker has published two compilations of poetry: Vliegenierswonden and De stort. An Italian translation of his novella De zon als hij valt, about a journey that a boy, a girl, an eye and a wrist make in order to be together, is due to be published later this year. Joost is also an accomplished performer, having appeared at the Crossing Border Festival and Lowlands. It is now the turn of Kamera Kultura, where he will present one of his columns in person.

High time that the French chanson was introduced at Kamera Kultura! Sunday tranquillity, spring fever in April, the intimacy of Juni Café and an inviting fresh buffet: the scene is set for a captivating, melancholic, romantic dialogue. And this is something you can safely leave to singer Wendy Maria Dekker and pianist Anton Titsing. Performing under the name Chansons d’ Anton & Wendy, this musical duo plays minimalist versions of prestigious numbers. From Brel to Piaf, on an otherwise ordinary Sunday morning.
