Every last Wednesday of the month we host Jazz in /K. A group of musicians fills our restaurant with some swinging and magical sounds. So, make your dinner or movie night even cozier by watching and listening to the band!

 

Visit Studio/K and enjoy for free, every last Wednesday of the month, from 10 PM.

Every two or three months, Studio/K pays homage to the ‘Kroeg’ (café) as a place where different kinds of people come together and speak freely about daily life or have political discussions. We notice that people often feel overwhelmed by all the information in the media about current political and social issues, and struggle with how to interpret the debate or how to take action. To help with this, we are introducing a new series of programs, called /Kroegcollege. The evening will focus on a social phenomenon, with experts sharing their insights. And afterwards, you can discuss and socialize while enjoying a drink!

 

On February the 29th, the first /Kroegcollege will be organized: On Fascism. In these tumultuous times, we think it is important to start a conversation about fascism, its history, different forms and dangers. In SK4, from 20.00 till 21.00, dr. Markha Valenta (UU) will facilitate short lectures about fascism. There is room for questions and/or discussions.

 

Speaker:
Markha Valenta is an Assistant Professor at University College Utrecht whose work takes shape at the intersection of Politics, Anthropology and History. Their research focuses on the dynamic relation between globalization, international relations, and diversity politics relative to democracy and justice (“geopolitics of diversity”), with particular attention to developments in the United States, Netherlands and India.
