DEFRAME is a collective of visual artists that focus on developing and creating interactive installations, live visual performances and scenographies. Their aim is to merge the worlds from different dimensions, code languages and various types of media such as video, digital animation and photography. The overall experience is an important aspect of their work; audio, visuals, light and space should all work in harmony to create an immersive experience. In order to achieve this, their work is often site-specific, or consists of custom made surroundings or stages. Their performances and installations have brought the collective to many exciting and beautiful venues in both the Netherlands and abroad.
Monk and Mondrian
In 2017 it is the theme year from 'De Stijl': 'From Mondrian to Dutch Design'. a 100 years ago, Theo van Doesburg founded 'De Stijl' in the city of Leiden. A new art movement was born which was to influence modern art worldwide. During the roaring 20's Mondrian listened to Stravinsky and Satie while living in Paris. Later, in the 1940's he came to New York and was confronted with the dazzling bebop from Thelonious Monk who's concerts he frequented. The New European Ensemble and four artists from the collective 'Deframe' bring to live the musical world of Piet Mondrian.
The concerts start at 15:00 and 16:00 on 3 and 24 September. Entrance is free of charge if you buy a ticket in the Gemeentemuseum (free with museumkaart).
