Hans van Lunteren / Ienke Kastelein


How can a seedling, a symbol of freedom, thrive in a prison where everything is tightly controlled? For Hacking Habitat, Hans van Lunteren and Ienke Kastelein examine this interface between captivity, systems, control and letting go.

We live in a world in which more and more is regulated and controlled. Is there still room for natural, spontaneous development? Can we occupy that space for ourselves? This current, urgent question is posed by Van Lunteren/Kastelein in the ecological project Walled Ground. Seedlings are an expression of freedom in a city where every square meter is occupied. A seedling hacks the city and together with the neighbourhood the artist develops an alternative ‘hack-your-way’-route around the Wolvenplein. By means of a choreographic walk, visitors can experience the interaction between captivity and freedom.

Every Sunday from 20 March, you can join the choreographic walk. More information can be found here.
