Studio Luisterbuis

Beyoncé, Ali B, Broederliefde: everyone is busy with his or her ancestors and history.
Who you are is the story you tell about yourself. What and who make up that story?
What would you rather leave out from your story? Are only your experiences important?
Or do the stories of your family (mother, father, grandfather, grandmother, and beyond) also belong to you too?

Studio Luisterbuis is a project that has been developed by artist duo RoosWiesBlauw for students in years 6 and 7 (ages 9-12) in the context of the Culture Trajectory for students in secondary education.

During the workshop, an interactive guided tour allows students to view and ask questions about Going Back to Forget: an exhibition in which different artists present works about memory and personal connections to larger histories.
After this, the students will start working on a story in the Studio Luisterbuis workshop of RoosWiesBlauw.

Studio Luisterbuis is located in the middle of TENT’s exhibition space. In this special space, RoosWiesBlauw is working on an experiment in which they collect different versions of the same story. The story actually exists, but its many gaps mean it cannot yet be told. The workshop participants fill in the gaps by answering questions. In this way, they put words into the story without knowing where their contributions shall be placed. From a computer, a story that reads like a script appears on a big screen with the push of a button. Finally, the story, including background noises made during the workshop, is recorded and stored as a podcast in the RoosWiesBlauw story archive.
