Expo: 14-23 April 2017

Curator Virginie Moerenhout, longtime resident at the Cultural Freezone Landbouwbelang, invited 27 international artists for a special anniversary art experience, titled Order vs Chaos as part of Landbouwbelang’s 15th Birthday Bash. Visitors can expect a variety in art and music experiences in an unusual setting, alongside the usual open-minded hospitality of the Landbouwbelang residents, artists and inventors.

The Cultural Freezone is renowned for being the habitat of pure creativity and out-of-the-box thinking, offering anyone with a healthy curiosity and zest for life the chance to join their community and participate in experimental and educational events for all ages. Over the years, the Landbouwbelang’s function as an international cultural incubator broadened its perspective, as a prominent incubator for all essentials concerning our society and the way our species takes or forsakes its responsibility to do right.

A fine example is Demotech, design for self reliance and sustainability, founded by inventive designer Reindert van Tijen in 1975. The office and workshop is located at the Landbouwbelang where, as you may have guessed by now, Reindert van Tijen like Virginie, is a longtime resident. At Demotech, a dedicated team designs and develops tools from recycled materials to suit every day life in the poorest communities on earth. The waterpump in Ghana, the RopePump, for example. It’s one of their many, versatile activities.

For his work, founder Reindert van Tijen was knighted in 2008 with the Order of Orange-Nassau. His foundation has always welcomed interns from various -technical- universities in the Netherlands with an innovative approach to practical science and re-designing.
