The Camp is a work in progress by Academie voor Beeldvorming in cooperation with Noodopvang Rosmalen, a male only emergency shelter for refugees in a secluded area near the Dutch city of ’s-Hertogenbosch. The project, in which several artists are involved, aims to bring the people out of the shelter, into the city, and introduce them to Dutch society.
The ultimate goal is to differentiate on their situation and thus take away the fear for the unknown that lives among many of us.So far a cooking project has been initiated. Most remarkable accomplishment yet: refugees from Afghanistan, Iran and Syria have cooked an elaborate meal for a party of 60 Rotary Club members. The project is not confined to food, alternative approaches will be examined in close reconciliation with the people whom this all concerns: the refugees.
