This is a public service announcement: MAMA is 21 year old!

21 years of MAMA is 21 years of graffiti art, skate-culture, fashion, games, graphic design, mass-culture, nightlife, internet art, social media and fan-culture. In short, the meeting of youth culture and arts. From mid-October until mid-November MAMA organizes events under the title Breaking Barriers – a manifestation to celebrate our eternal youth. Remember, kids: age ain’t nothing but a number!

So, what’s on the menu? A performance centred around skate-object Twist & Shout, a journey through MAMA’s history as seen through the eyes (and pens) of young visual artists, a spectacular dinnershow and a party extravaganza.

Check the complete programme below!

Popularly called ‘the Wokkel’, Rotterdam loves nicknames, Twist & Shout is a skate-object designed as part of MAMA’s pitch contest ‘Reclaiming the Street’ in 2010. The artwork was made for skateboarders and freestylers who are familiar with claiming public spaces as part of their living world. The Wokkel was only this year conquered for the first time by skateboarder Tim Zom. HipHop & Skate collective Green Cabin hosts a best trick & art contest under the title GC Skate Mom.

18:00 – 22:00
Tickets available in the ticketshop

About HOME

HOME is the leitmotiv by which we encourage conversation about conceptions regarding belonging, representation and identification. HOME is a fundament, the place you return to and anchorpoint for the journey onward. HOME (offline as well as online) is the start of feeling connect to others. Under the name HOME we also present exhibitions in the showroom of MAMA. In collaboration with young makers we express interpretations about HOME | IN REAL LIFE | NETWORKS.
