Polana Institute presents “Headquarters"; a type of political fiction aimed at bringing us closer to something that never existed but could have – actively combining feminism, craftsmanship, and radical artistic performance. Polana's exhibition space has been transformed into the imaginative office of the Guild, an association of individuals constructing various structures. The idea is similar to that of The Building Institute, an informal platform also created by Olga Micińska, aiming to emancipate technical knowledge in the field of art and beyond, as well as to support diverse and balanced development within the market of construction work. The Headquarters are curated by Olga Micińska (DAI, 2018) and feature among other practitioners, Samantha McCulloch (DAI, 2019) as well as contributions by Olga herself.

Open Rehearsal is a new initiative of If I Can’t Dance to support the development of performance practices across the diverse communities of artists based in Amsterdam and the Netherlands, aiming to create much-needed space for intimate dialogue on ideas- and works-in-process.
