Crowdfunding Campaign: 10-year anniversary publication!


Help us to realise the 10-year anniversary publication of Zone2Source! Donate Now!

As Zone2Source was founded in 2013, this year we celebrate our 10-year anniversary! Zone2Source is a platform for art, nature and technology in the Amstelpark, Amsterdam. With many outdoor artworks, an artist garden and glass pavilions where we present exhibitions, residencies and events, we imagine the Amstelpark as a testing ground for a life in the Symbiocene. We use the park as a living lab, where we take artistic research out of the studios and into the public space, engaging people in the explorations and imaginations of artists and giving new context to being human on a multi-species planet.

About the publication

For our 10-year anniversary we are planning a special publication that will look back on the past 10 years of Zone2Source, whilst also examining possible futures. By highlighting key projects and collaborations, the publication – in text and images – will take a closer look at the practice of making and curating art in the site responsive space of an urban park that engages with our perspectives on society, nature and technology. We will also invite guest writers (artists, researchers and curators) to narrate and expand on their practice and experiences at Zone2Source. The publication ultimately brings together all the amazing projects artists have developed with us in the past ten years, allowing the reader to reflect on the myriad of ways art can play a role in the urgent ecological challenges of our time.

The publication will be designed by Karoline Swiezinsky, who Zone2Source have been collaborating with for over 8 years!
