This podcast is broadcasted on Operator Radio and made available online afterwards

As a result of Lavinia Xausa’s block Truly, Madly, Deeply, we dive deeper into subcultures. We invited Louis van der Waal & Hajo Doorn, the creators & producers of Gabber, De Hardcore Opera, to take their angle on one of the most notorious youth subcultures that hailed from Rotterdam. In two hours, the two will guide us through their research & track selection in the realms of Gabber, as well as through some ideas behind their Hardcore Opera.  

ROODKAPJE RADIO | Podcast pt. 6: Truly Madly Deeply... The Podcast

Tuesday, July 26th, 15:00 - 17:00
This podcast is broadcasted on Operator Radio and made available online afterwards

In this podcast we will be exploring the themes and subject matter of the work of Visual artist and documentarist Lavinia Xausa whose current project focuses on questions as why, in contemporary society, more and more people gather around groups with a strong identity and unity such as political supporters, football fans, online communities etc. Joining Lavinia is Jacco van Sterkenburg who is a researcher working as an endowed professor in race, inclusion and communication, specifically in relation to football and media and Rotterdam local and Feyenoord supporter Joia Wienstra.  

TRULY, MADLY, DEEPLY As an artist, Lavinia Xausa is interested in why we as people do what we do to ourselves. When a close relation suddenly converted towards a controversial political position, Xausa started to wonder how individuals today tend to get absorbed into the politics of a crowd. What drives these groups and how do they provide a sense of unity and community that in many ways mimics, or even replaces, religion?
In Truly, Madly, Deeply, Xausa continues her research into these topics by focussing on the experience of die-hard football supporters and hardcore culture, and further explores their aesthetics and characteristics. Every part of Truly, Madly, Deeply is as much anthropology as it is semiotics, and deepens Xausa’s work while culminating into a final project to be shown this December.

ROODKAPJE’S HAMBURGER COMMUNITY The Hamburger Community programs of Roodkapje provide two yearlong development trajectories for five young, talented artists (Art), and five aspiring event programmers (Live). Throughout the year both the Hamburger Community of Art and Live collectively work towards five interdisciplinary programmes built around the work and research of the individual Hamburger Community artists. During their stay at Roodkapje the artists and residents will receive guidance and support from professionals from their respective fields, and through an in-depth trajectory that is aimed at further developing their professional skills and positions.

SPECIAL THANKS TO Roodkapje’s Hamburger Community of Art was made possible with the kind support of Stichting Bevordering van Volkskracht, Stichting Ondernemersbelangen Rotterdam, Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds, Stichting Elise Mathilde Fonds, Fleur Groenendijk Foundation, and the Gemeente Rotterdam.
