Looking for volunteers for play in The Hague



Dear all,

We are looking for volunteers for our art project: Organism. This will be our third project out of five for Urban Play The Hague, a project affiliated with the DCR Guest Studio.

The idea for Organism is inspired by the sound of the country's Luchtalarm which is tested every first Monday of the month at 12 O'clock. During the 1.5 minutes of alarm testing, we want to surprise the city with an action in the heart of The Hague's city centre. In order for the surprise to work, we will need your help. We've included a short video explaining what we would like to do.

Cadavre Exquis workshop
13.05.2011, Haags Montessori Lyceum (HML)


During art lessons in one of the classroom I have done the workshop with teenagers.
I asked them to play the Cadavre Exquis (Exquisite Corpse) which was a favourite surrealist game from the mid-1920s onwards. I started the game, by drawing little pattern, after that I covered the picture leaving merely a small part for another person to continue from this point on. In the end every person created a drawing on one surface a big roll of paper without knowing the input of another.
The experience of the game has a references to the mural I would like to do in the back of the school. Where I asked children to leave me little notes, drawing of their wishes according to the final design of the mural.
The result is a collaboration with strong sense of individualism and a surprise.
