Excursion – The Invisible Park – Marjolijn Boterenbrood

Marjolijn Boterenbrood

In the course of the year 2015, which is dedicated to the soil, Marjolijn Boterenbrood develops the project Sporen, in which she explores the invisible world in both the Amstelpark and the nearby Gijsbrecht van Aemstelpark which takes place below our feet through a series of workshops, expert meetings, dinners, and excursions. The project will culminate in the making of a map which will be presented in the spring of 2016. In the next months Marjolijn will take participants on an excursion through the park to discover underground secrets of these two parks.
