Can our world be described, measured, ordered and quantified? Between the 2nd of July and the 1st of August, Foundation Frankendael and Nieuw Dakota present the double exhibition The Smooth and The Striated. The exhibition takes place within the framework of the Third International Deleuze Studies Conference, hosted by the University of Amsterdam and the University of Utrecht, which invites scholars to reflect on the ideas of the renowned twentieth century philosopher Gilles Deleuze. The exhibition is situated at two disparate sites in the city of Amsterdam: Huize Frankendael, a seventeenth century country house in the East of Amsterdam, and Nieuw Dakota, a former metal workshop on the NDSM-wharf in the North.

In their celebrated essay ‘The Smooth and The Striated’, Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari wrote about our apparent human desire to make various processes and environments comprehensible by means of delineating, quantifying and measuring. On the other hand, they emphasized the way in which our world resists these attempts at over-coding and hierarchization. Departing from different perspectives, the participating artists in The Smooth and The Striated reflect on this continuous interplay between that which is ‘measurable’ and that which is ‘immeasurable’.
