Amsterdam
The Dutch Architect Aldo van Eyck (1918-1999) built with a social purpose. His most famous building is maybe the Amsterdam Orphanage that influenced school building around the world with its integration of smaller pavilions to form a small town as a building. He had great attention to in-between spaces that could be occupied in endless ways by the kids.

One of his often overlooked achievements was building around 700 playgrounds on vacant lots in Amsterdam in the 40s and 50s. Up to 90 of them can still be seen today.

nowHere, a space where a spot becomes a place.
15 march - 25 may, 2008

nowHere, is a cabinet which invokes a dialogue on re-appropriation of the private and public domain. Through personal tags and geographies (books, movies, music, websites, drawings, mappings, photocopies, art works, ... ) it reads as a 'certain' historical relation between human, space and technology.

bolwerK considers the constructed in-between space of architect C.Kieckens, within the art space, Z33, not as a sub-art space with a curatorial reading; a cabinet as 'museum' but as a space with a personal narrative and a social meaning embedded in a neighborhood. The active use of the space for living, eating, working, sleeping implies that the cabinet is more a 'room of collection', in a live, real-time situation.

During PLACE@SPACE Marthe Van Dessel will post live from Z33, as a guest contributor on Free Soil, to connect, publish and share her discourse
with the virtual open public resources of the net.

The the conceptualization of the space as 'ongoing', work-in-progress externalizes the precarity of information, issues of copyright, authorship, knowledge production and hierarchical information networks.
