Our phones enable us to inhabit multiple worlds and realities at the same time… but are we still really HERE?
In this walk, Liesje van den Berk asks the participants to temporarily replace their telephone with a blank paper telephone and graphite pencil to walk and draw in silence and concentration in the Amstelpark. Drawing becomes a way to actively experience the richness of one’s environment, and to truly connect. At the end, the participants share one of their drawings on a map of the Amstelpark. These drawings are left behind in the Amstelpark to show a part of the walk, a memory of a moment, to the other visitors of the park.
Sunday November 22 Event in the context of Bruno Latour Spinoza prize -> more information
Program in the context of the event of Welcome in the Parliament of Things.- opening of Floriade Whisperings, four audio plays in which the history of the park is narrated from the perspectives of 4 plants by Cathelijne Montens en Krijn Christiaanse. While walking between the sites of the plays, the artists discuss their work in the context of Bruno Latour’s theory with philosopher Jesse Havinga.
