Shadow Floriade: Testing grounds for art and ecology | Amstelpark | 22 April – 16 October
On April 22, Earth Day, we will open the Shadow Floriade in honor of 50 years of Amstel Park (Floriade 1972). During the Shadow Floriade we will take the public into new imaginations and experiences of nature in exhibitions, outdoor works, expeditions and workshops at various locations in the park. The Shadow Floriade begins with Perfect Nature: Amstelpark Test Site, a group exhibition and fieldwork study organised in collaboration with Neal White of CREAM/Westminster University London.
Machine Wilderness | ARTIS | 11 March – 24 June
The artistic research project Machine Wilderness runs at ARTIS from March 11 to June 24, organized by Theun Karelse (FoAM) and Alice Smits (Zone2Source). In Machine Wilderness eight artists investigate the relationship between technology, people and nature in ARTIS. They take visitors along through workshops, lectures and expeditions. Can technology also be designed to serve not only humans but also other living organisms?

Zone2Source is an international platform for art, nature and technology. We welcome you to experience the projects that artists have developed inside and outside of the glass pavilions of the Amstelpark, using this environment as a living lab. In our exhibitions and projects, we propose alternative practices and experiences of our ‘natural’ environment. Zone2Source is concerned with a return to the source to observe and experience anew in order to explore new relations between humans, nature and technology.
In exhibitions, workshops, presentations and discussions we offer alternative imaginations to reorient ourselves with what a 21st century way of dealing with our world could be.
Zone2Source is open on Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 13:00 – 17:00 and upon request. Let us know you want to come via email@example.com. Free admission.
