(Uberbau, 2012) As co-curator and invited artist of the international art festival De Wereld van Witte de With Festival 2012 we made four key contributions:
- A street exhibition on the development of Western streets, in general, and on Rotterdam’s Witte de Withstraat in particular;
- The organisation and execution of so-called “Street Talks”, a lecture format that invited internationally acclaimed experts to discuss problems and potentials of contemporary streets from different angles directly on the street;
- A two-day workshop entitled “The Missing Street”, that developed visions of cities where streets were missing;
- A publication that was “live published” during the workshop and that includes its results, input lectures and discussions.
With 35 000 – 40 000 visitors the three-day festival reached a new vistor record.
