Gill Baldwin of the Hamburger Community of Art would like to invite you to the interactive audio Tour, There is Something I’ve Been Meaning to Ask You…
An alternative audio tour through the city center of Rotterdam. The audio tour was brought together interlinking a series of interviews with architects, designers, and AI researchers about the increase of surveillance in their (and our) daily lives.
Comprised during the summer months as the pandemic, track and trace paranoia, and protests ran throughout the world, the audio tour takes you along architectural highlights along the way, giving an intimate and personal look into place and structures you think you know, and allows you to reconsider your everyday surroundings as active sites of surveillance.
Guided tours will take place on Saturday 17 and 31 October, and 14 November.There are two tours each day, starting 13:00 and 16:00 hours, in groups of max. 3 people. We will be following corona measures and social distance guidelines.Tours begin and end at Roodkapje, and take about 45 minutes.The price of the tour is free but you must reserve a time slot.To participate in the tour you need a working SMARTPHONE and HEADPHONES.In order to start tours in time we ask you to arrive 30 minutes prior to the start of the tour.Tours take place rain or shine, so please dress warmly!

THE HAMBURGER COMMUNITY OF ART (HCA)
The Hamburger Community of Art (HCA) is Roodkapje’s year long residency and development trajectory for young and emerging artists, based on the principles of experimentation, collaboration, and developing new artistic practices. What can artists learn from each other? How can (young) artists stimulate their development collectively? And, how can they find new and intriguing ways to connect to diverse audiences?
This project is supported by Roodkapje and Stimulerings Fonds NL.
