Invisible City is a three days art festival initiated and organized by Fiona Weir, Ans Kanen and Liat Magenzy. Artists, builders, architects, actors, dancers, players and thinkers were invited to react to the notion of the moving, invisible city. Its goal is to put the spotlight on Schiedam by means of art and culture. For the first time the city will be flooded with artists from all over the world. Invisible City aims to free Schiedam from the shadow of Big Brother Rotterdam.
Ruimte in Beweging on Boterstraat is the central point of Invisible City. Several entrances give access to the building. It has a large, open main space and some divided smaller spaces. Each has its own atmosphere and peculiarities. For Invisible City, the building will be transformed to a city in itself, a shadow city.
The individual visions of the artists form a city installation, an integral work built up from personal views of the city. The way the city dweller moves around in a city, the way a city is discovered, is the way a visitor of Invisible City discovers the town that springs from the artist’s imagination. Nobody will take the same story home.
