The OntFront Travel Pack
Fewer possessions equal more freedom. OntFront has created a travel pack with core essentials for gentlemen with a passion for style and traveling.
Dutch menswear brand OntFront unveils their new and extra light travel Pack right in time for the fall. The OntFront travel pack contains a durable white crew neck T-shirt, a square collar white dress shirt and a 15 Oz Japanese selvage denim dress pants. The pack also contains a travel map printed cotton bow tie and pocket square to tweak an outfit for any occasion. And last but not least, the travel pack features a collaborative limited edition backpack between OntFront and leather goods designer Flybird. This roll up backpack is handcrafted in Amsterdam. The backpack is made of a green water repellent waxed canvas and authentic brown full grain cow leather.
The OntFront travel pack will be sold exclusively in the OntFront store in Amsterdam (and webstore), starting Monday September 15th 2014.
‘If you wish to travel far and fast, travel light.’

Akademie Schloss Solitude
September 4 - September 21
Program: Friday – Sunday from 2pm to 7pm.
For their solo intervention at Akademie Schloss Solitude, Apparatus 22 collective is unveiling “AS GOOD AS GOLD” - a new work that takes over The Barn (map here), the institution’s remarkable concert hall.
The second in a series of works building tension on the ambivalence of words used both in the sacred sphere and consumerist vocabulary, “AS GOOD AS GOLD” is a meditation from different vantage points on the arbitrariness of gold as a constructed measure for an “economy of identities and differences within which power and desire circulate".
Could the peculiar perfection contained within gold and its endless capacity for representation be mimicked by something less (or more) than gold?
In a gesture of positive destruction Apparatus 22 wonders whether, when suddenly conscious of arbitrary perceived values, we have the capacity to hold on to other common grounds.
The immersive installation of the Romanian collective is complimented with an artist introduction and listening sessions of “The Hour Broadcast” - a joint sound installation of Apparatus 22 + StudioBASAR + Sillyconductor.
Apparatus 22 – “AS GOOD AS GOLD” exhibition is realized with the additional generous support of the Romanian Cultural Institute in Berlin and of Apparatus 22 Circle of Friends 2014 - 2015.
