Piet Zwart Community Choir (2012)

A choir formed with students of the Piet Zwart Institute. From 2012 till beginning of 2013 I have been working at a table in the streets of Rotterdam. After the funding cuts in 2011 I was interested in moving my practice into public space. While working I was often interrupted by passersby. I noted down their comments and the conversations I overheard.
I made a song that made use of the sentences I collected. These sentences were incomprehensible to 95% of the students and choir practice served as lead in for discussion on the presence of the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam.
