Satellietgroep & all invited artists and designers and guests warmly invite you to join the exhibition & program to rethink our perceptions of culture and nature.
During five weeks, every week we shift the focus within the whole exhibition process, with a program of workshops, seminars and expditions. Visitors have the opportunity to connect and contribute to the
ongoing process of artistic research, share their thoughts and insights,
and discover through the arts a multitude of fields of knowledge.

SATURDAY NOVEMBER 3
NATURE & THE ARCHITECT
EXCARVATING THE SQUARE MOUNTAIN
Join artists Sachi Miyachi, Thijs Ebbe Fokkens and Maurice Bogaert. As three subjective tour guides they will each share the way they navigate and contemplate the space of Electriciteitsfabriek.
British philosopher Timothy Morton calls climate a 'hyperobject', too large to relate to. Zooming in or out on the landscape and climate of Electriciteitsfabriek, each artist narrates an ideal perspective of unexpected discoveries.

SUNDAY NOVEMBER 4
WORKSHOP 'EAST-WEST-THINKING CEMENT'
Onkruidenier - Jonmar van Vlijmen & Ronald Boer icw Rosanne van Wijk
14:30 - 17:00
Onkruidenier & Rosanne van Wijk connect Climate as Artifact in The Hague with the parallel artist-in-residency at Bamboo Curtain Studio in Taipei, on the island of Taiwan in the East China Sea. On both locations they bring together the ingredients - sand, burnt shells, sugar and glutinous rice - to fabricate cement according to a historic recipe brought by the Dutch from ancient China and introduced at Formosa during colonial times (1624-1662). Though the ingredients are known, there are no records of guidelines for production. How did the Dutch learn to create this strong and yet elastic cement?
This afternoon we invite you to join the research of grinding, boiling, pressing and mixing of ingredients.
The experimentation takes place simultaneous in the former industrial factory in The Hague and highly urbanised Taipei. With the raw materials they aim to bring the world of the coast (sand
shells) together with the world of the supermarket (sugar and
