Gabber Nation 2.0 @Intersections during Art Rotterdam 2017

After having sturred up the quiet community of Beetsterzwaag in the summer of 2016, Kunsthuis SYB reunites the Gabber Nation collective of artists for a presentation at Intersections Art Rotterdam. Henrike Naumann, Ekaterina Burlyga, Johannes Büttner, Bastian Hagedorn, Tea Palmelund, Boris Postma and Merle Vorwald will delve into the gabber scene of Rotterdam and present new works in Gabber Nation 2.0. 

Moving from the rural to the urban, Gabber Nation 2.0 takes as point of departure the birthplace of gabber: Rotterdam. In the early 1990’s the city of pounding construction sites and harbor activity seemed to inspire the beat of hardcore music. This radical electronic music style soon took over the Rotterdam party scene, with raves being held in legendary venues like the Energiehal and club Parkzicht. For Gabber Nation 2.0 the artists immersed themselves into the gabber scene of Rotterdam, creating new works that appeal to its rich history and its meaning today.
