Meeting landscapes from an artistic and philosophical perspective through on-site encounters is the main focus of Buro Ruimte Rondom. At a time when digitization becomes increasingly dominant, we feel it is relevant to offer alternative ways of meeting people and matter. We obviously relate to our environment, such as the city in which we live or the forest where we take walks. But how can we build sustainable and equally valuable connections? What we encounter on a small scale at a set moment, will possibly provide an entry to examining and reinventing larger contexts. By exploring local phenomena and personal testimonies, by being present and engaging in dialogue, by collectively experiencing apparently hidden structures, we seek to give voice to the human and non-human that cannot always speak for itself. That is, not in words.
