My project turns the archive into a personal narrative. I develop a tool that can be used for integration. It serves non-dutch people to encounter the Dutch culture and national memory.
This project invites participants to re-narrate their personal experience in Dutch historical and political realm by using the audio-visual materials from the archive.
To go through such a huge archive collection I first set up selection criteria. I’m looking for typical Dutch “things” that person can do in different parts of his/her life. Moments that grab attention, show diversity or are funny seem to me more interesting than other ones. And add to that I realised it’s very important to look at the videos from the perspective of knowing how they are going to be displayed – as an interactive web questionnaire generating personalised video artworks.
