Savage, investigating the surroundings of the museum for a new work

The artists and designers participating in this workshop share a common interest in the singularities and peculiarities of specific locations. The workshop focuses on the area F-7, the only plot of land in the heart of Almere that hasn’t been rulerdrawn yet. It is home to temporary buildings and activities: youth housing, coffeeshop De Blowboot, a building materials storage site for the Municipality of Almere, youngsters, school for lower secondary professional education Villa Parkhurst, De Muur – Almere’s grafitti hotspot, carnival trailers and Museum De Paviljoens.
