Their work is about possibilities, chances and new adventures often to be found in the smallest and most trivial things. They do not believe in complaining and despairing over everything that’s wrong, but in focussing on what there is to work with and figure out how to turn it into something better. They attended the Willem the Kooning academy in Rotterdam, the Netherlands and have participated in various events in the Netherlands and abroad, and have worked as consultants for various institutions and companies. They will give a mindblowing introduction to Jacques Tati’s magnum opus Playtime.
