Japanese Knotweed Season 2024

Every spring, Mediamatic organises a season around Japanese knotweed. Knotweed is a fast-growing plant known in Europe for being considered invasive. What many do not know, however, is that this plant species has a host of positive properties. During this season we will explore how to live in harmony with this controversial plant.

Sander Nederveen

Sander Nederveen is a brewmaster at Oedipus, a new Amsterdam brewery. Oedipus prefers to brew beer to fit each person's preferences, and for each moment of the day. After a visit to a beer festival in Copenhagen Sander Nederveen and his friends decided to brew beer themselves. With names such as Mannenliefde, Dodo and Salty Dick, they aren't your typical beer brewers. They mix a variety of different ingredients with their beer. Because of that, they really do stand out from the crowd.
