Paraphrasing Babel

Last night I attended the opening of a brand new exhibition by Viewmaster foundation 'Paraphrasing Babel'.
As you may remember I also reported about the previous exhibitions, Body Talks in 2011 and For Real in 2010. This time the video installations and projections are showcased in public space in Maastricht and in Heerlen.
The evening started with a bus tour from Maastricht to Heerlen, where the official opening took place.
Here you can take a look at some impressions but I recommend you to take a walk in Maastricht and Heerlen and enjoy the full experience of Paraphrasing Babel. The exhibition is open until November 18th ( every evening 6 pm - 23 pm).

Paraphrasing Babel is a multidisciplinary exhibition with video projections, video installations, moving graphic structures and sound artworks in the public space of the cities of Heerlen and Maastricht - two urban centres with a very diverse feel in a border region where different languages and dialects are spoken and different cultures meet. The 35 projections and ‘soundscapes’ have rarely been shown outside the confines of museums or art institutes. Their specific contents make these pieces perfect for showing in the (semi-)public domain. After all, it is on the street where different languages meet or blend and where the media and commerce are directly addressing the public. In these surroundings, the artworks engage in a direct relationship with the onlooker or passer-by and reach the public in an alternative form.
