Our recommendations:

  • OYAYI: Listen to the voices and heartbeats of women inside a Philippine prison. What is going through their heads while nobody is listening? Artist collective KWAGO managed to capture this with poetry sessions in prison. As the women read their poems, KWAGO recorded their heartbeats. By listening deeply to these stories, the thoughts and prayers of these women come to light.

  • Liminal Lands: Jakob Kudsk Steensen is a Danish artist working with spatial narratives through 3D animation, soundscapes, and installations. For Liminal Lands, he spent several months in the saltwater region of Camargue, France. The installation and VR experience will drag you into the crystallized world of the Camargue. This close intimacy with the environment allows you to feel the pulsating rhythm of life in the landscape.

  • Spacemakers: Spacemakers is an STRP educational program that challenges young people to think and rise above their expectations. Students from Eindhoven schools such as Fontys Hogeschool, Sint Lucas, and Summa College collaborated with artists to create their projects. All around the topic of "The Art of Listening.” To highlight one, the young talents made their feelings tangible through the VR installation "What a time to be alive."
