Fanzine: Ideas for crisis and community by Domenique Himmelsbach de Vries

During his residency at Werkplaats Molenwijk, social artist Domenique Himmelsbach de Vries worked on an idea library containing 120 sketched plans for social interventions, which stimulate conversation. With these ideas as a source of inspiration, local residents discussed their own issues during weekly consultation hours in Werkplaats Molenwijk in order to develop new ideas and insights.

A retrospect of his residency is now available in the form of a fanzine. Here you will find sketched examples for community projects and a look back on the issues that came up.
