ROEF Rooftop Festival Amsterdam

OBA Central Library

Friday June 7 + Saturday June 8

Interactive art installation ‘DOWN is up’

Theater festival Over Het IJ presents ‘DOWN is up: On getting your head submerged in an iceberg’ by artists Hilda Moucharrafieh and Paula Chaves. In a performative installation, the artistic duo guide you to explore how we can deal with radical changes in the field of climate, economy, borders and how we live together.

The visitors are invited to submerge into an ecosystem of voices from environmental activists to non-western cosmogonies, reversed cartographies and queer erotica, as a way to dislocate our normative readings of current political weather forecasts.

Not everyone knows that there is a roof terrace on the top floor of the Central Library (OBA). You have a beautiful view of the Oosterdokskade and the passing boats, Central Station and the city center. Plus, the café with its large roof terrace at the top of the OBA has been completely renovated and is super nice!

Address: Oosterdokskade 143, 1011 DL Amsterdam
