A virtual museum squating in the Museum Quarter in Amsterdam. Poems dancing above the grass, as the NRC header interpretates.
The Poetry Museum marks Twan Janssen and Johannes Verwoerd’s first collaboration as International Silence.
Curator Anna Enquist selected ten poets, who each provided six poems. ‘Visitors’ download the app to their phones and wander through the virtual museum – a space for their eyes only.
Together with Amsterdam Marketing, a campaign was launched that reached millions of people through news websites, newspapers and even the radio.
