Design as alien — workshop


In stock



What do non-humans, animals, plants and microbes experience in our human designed world? Designer Yi-Fei Chen devised a drawing workshop for families and children (8-11 years) that tilts our human perspective. The participants are asked to see the world from the perspective of an alien and to come up with design solutions for humans ànd non-humans.

De paling is ook een Amsterdammer

The Embassy of the North Sea listens to the voices of the North Sea. In Amsterdam we listen to the eel by researching the question how non-human stakes can be represented in public space.

In the Oosterdok we are working on an eel park, a place where humans and the underwater world can meet. From 1 to 31 October 2022, the OBA Oosterdok will host a programme about the dialogue with the underworld with videos, workshops, art and film.
