The live broadcast dialogue can be followed in room B0-06 in the museum. Afterwards, the dialogue is on view in this room during opening hours of the museum, until the next dialogue will be recorded.
This dialogue is part of the new KIOSK series started by the Mobile Academy at the Van Abbemuseum, called Shadowing Institutions. The Museum is the first object of interest, covered in a series of 2 hour talks with staff members of the Van Abbemuseum and dialogue partners from outside the institution.
These series follow the simple notion that an implicit social knowledge exists in every institution and organisation, which is both known and unknown to those who are working inside. That this knowledge has to be communicated in order to be effective, both inside and outside of its context.
These dialogues will be added to Hurtzigs FCA - (Flight Case Archive), a mobile continuously growing archive, where one can sit, watch and listen to an audio-visual discussion archive with “Stories about places, cities and territories”.

This dialogue is on view in the museum (room B0-06) until 25 November 2010.
Planning of the upcoming dialogues will be announced shortly.
