“The air is filled with ideas. In a very dense cloud. And at some locations those ideas penetrate the clouds and drop down to earth. All you need is people, who want to function as funnels.”
—Frank van Klingeren in De Nieuwe Linie, 1974

WE are those people who are needed to give ideas a place on earth. Anyone can become a funnel for ideas! United We investigates with artists, designers, architects, managers and a growing group of curious people the how, what and why of a renewed belief in collectivity. Which ideas exist at this moment about other forms of working, living, organizing? How do these ideas take shape?

United We consists of an exhibition with work by Frank of Klingeren, Potential Estate, Conditional Design, Itay Ohaly, gerlach en koop, Pratchaya Phinthong invited by gerlach en koop and Ante Timmermans. United We is the third exhibition within Stroom’s Upcycling program on new perspectives of value creation. The two previous Upcycling exhibitions were Up to You (2010) and There, I Fixed It (2011). Up to You presented structures that gave the visitors/users the freedom to adapt them according to their own wishes. There, I Fixed It focused on the mentality of the user. With United We Stroom focuses on the organization form. In other words: After the You and the I of the first two exhibitions, this third edition zooms in on the We.

In an extensive program of activities we will delve into six areas where collectivity plays a role: United We Work, Make, Live, Learn, Organize, and Resist.

Follow the development of the project on our website www.stroom.nl and via Tumblr.

We would like to thank the artists, participants and partners of United We, Mondriaan Fund, DOEN Foundation, Creative Industries Fund NL.
