Het Stenen Hoofd | Research Project, Installation

Het Stenen Hoofd is a defunct Amsterdam dock located in close proximity to the city centre. For this research project regarding the site’s history – and the subsequent flag-installation –, I gathered and evaluated both textual and visual source material and media that, together, served to tell a multilayered history of the structure of the dock and the space it has become since being shut down for maritime usage.

In collaboration with Foundation Het Stenen Hoofd and Amsterdam project space W139, sixteen flags featuring a selection of images were installed on-site, modestly evoking various histories of the inner-city »wasteland« on which they were planted.

QR codes attached to the flagpoles gave visitors access to background information on each flag’s respective motif.
