THIS IS PARADISE, IS THIS PARADISE?
A QUEST FOR PARADISES IN ARNHEM FROM TROPICAL GARDENS TO WATER PARKS, WHICH LOCATIONS PROMISE US THE THINGS WE SEE IN HOLIDAY BROCHURES?
Dubbel glas (Double glazing) edition no.2
Holiday! Yay! In the summer, we all pack up and go to bungalow parks, campsites, exotic countries, resorts and holiday homes with plastic palm trees and artificial grass.
But our own city is also home to many promised mini-countries and paradises. We went in search of Arnhem paradises. From tropical gardens to water parks, which locations make promises such as we are used to seeing in holiday brochures?
Dubbel glas (Double glazing)
Dubbelglas is a physical exhibition in the studio of the Vormforensen in Arnhem. It is one single window in which we show our vision as graphic anthropologists. An exhibition that you can view from both the outside and the inside. On the basis of selected themes, we organized two other exhibitions in 2018.
Graphic anthropology is our domain within graphic design. We collect new words, bizarre phenomena, tantalising images and curious events. It is the niche of our interests, research and methods that we use to visually explore the field. We observe the world around us as graphic anthropologists. Within the Dubbelglas project, 3 editions have been realized in 2018.
