Ministerie van Ontroerend Goed, 2022

This installation by Maurik Stomps invites visitors to take a seat at one of the desk at the Ministry of Moving Matter. The space and furniture are deliberately a little to small, which puts the power of bureaucracy into perspective. Anyone can leave their own written drawn or photographed story about the city here, or record a message via the telephone to contribute to a growing archive.  The collectively curated archive will aim to answer the central question of this project: ‘how public is public space’ 

Designing the Social is an exhibition exploring 100 years of socially driven, idiosyncratic ideas about living together.
