What shall we do now? (2013)
Backstage walks in Hoog Catharijne, - initiated by Annette Krauss and Maja Bekan in the framework of The School of Temporalities.
Annette Krauss and Maja Bekan invite you to a series of walks through Hoog Catharijne that explore the backstage of time. Builders, office workers, researchers, cleaners, writers, security guards and residents have been asked to join the public walks as guiding experts, and to consider the questions: How do you deal with time in Hoog Catharijne and would you be willing to share your time with us?
The guided walks are envisioned as (sociable) moments of sharing experiences of passing and using time in Hoog Catharijne, casting light on different times-zones and the people who inhabit them.
