Film Sceening, Amsterdam

What Would It Mean To Win? is being screened at Outpost a new squatted artist run space in Amsterdam. Below is their post and weblink:

Outpost is a newly squatted artist run exhibition space in Slootervaart, a suburb of Amsterdam, which was squatted on october 11th 2009 with help from the kind people of kraak spreekuur west. It is situated on August Allebeplein in what used to be a thai restaurant on Jan Tooropstraat 35, which was standing empty since may 1st 2005. It is currently owned by Field Willow Real Estate Investments BV, which is a london based company, and if the city council of Slotervaart will approve of the plans to rebuild August Allebeplein it will be demoslished within a couple of years, probably in the end of 2011, but maybe later in 2012. We expect to stay until the end, but as we speak the Dutch government is busy with a new law banning squatting, in which case it is unclear what will happen. In the mean time we will try out best to share the space with you by organizing art exhibitions, film nights, dinners etc. Hope to see you around!
