PAPA international photopress agency

PAPA Participating Artists' Press Agency is an instrument for world mapping. In PAPA projects correspondents work together on shared commissions while everybody stays in his/her own country. In PAPA labs PAPA settles down in a temporary office in cities all over the world to do fieldwork together with local photographers/researchers. PAPA's street level observations inspire a broad audience and inform specialist arenas as art, photography, architecture, city development, politics and the news industry. www.papaplatform.com

First exploration of the idea for an artists press agency.
The ERRORIST in Bangladesh 8-28 November
Initial exploration of the idea of an artists' press agency through the introduction of a new basic human right: errorism or the right to make mistakes in Bangladesh. Residency at Drik multimedia organisation in Dhaka, Bangladesh. Director Shahidul Alam. With the support of the Netherlands Foundation for Visual Arts, Design and Architecture. www.errorist.net

Shared commissions while everybody stays in his/her own country

Flyover PAPA June to September
How four artists research the DNA of the flyover in the Netherlands and photographers in Bangladesh, Nigeria and Brazil supply alternative 'business concepts' for what can be done in the spaces beneath flyovers. Rob van Maanen Lino Hellings in the Hague Shahidul Alam Dhaka/Bangladesh and Toye Gbade Lagos Nigeria. Commissioned by the Department of Urban Development of the city of The Hague, the Netherlands.

Migration PAPA 1 - 31 November
In which we learn about the lives of urban newcomers in five different countries. Six photographers in five cities around the world take their cameras to urban neighbourhoods where newcomers arrive. The photos flow into the PAPA website like a wave moving around the world. First from Bangladesh, five hours later from Rotterdam and Lagos – cities in the same time zone. Detroit and São Paulo complete the group another seven hours later Participating photographers: Shahidul Alam in Dhaka, Andrew Esiebo in Lagos, Marcin Szczepanski in Detroit, Ines Correa in São Paulo and Nies Medema and Lino Hellings in Rotterdam. Commissioned by Kosmopolis, Rotterdam. With the support of the Hivos Culture Fund.

Projects in development:
The Trash of the City,
where photographers in 6 world cities go on 3 different shared photo-walks each in his/her own city. One with the official garbage men, one photo-walk with street sweepers and one with the unofficial recycle industries. 

Outside Eye
where PAPA photographers are invited to the Netherlands to co-research Institutions in shared photo-walks with people working/living there. Institutions like an old peoples home, a prison, a refugee center, a psychiatric hospital. I did some research with PAPA photo-walks in an Alzheimer clinic with a mixed group of art students and nurses working in the home (photo-walks in small groups) Worked great.

Fieldwork with local photographers/researchers in temporary office in cities all over the world.

Amsterdam Wild Walks
Five audiowalks unravelling the hidden script of the area around the Bijlmer metro station in Amsterdam South-East. One can follow the track of one of the – free according reality- fictious persons and hear on headphones his/her thoughts. It is possible to take a walk as a officeworker in his lunchbrake, a mother at her shopping round, a teenager chilling in the shoppingcentre, a homeless drugaddict strolling around the loading-berthes of the supermarkets and an ambitious new immigrant without papers marveling over the Dutch spirit of enterprise. The audiowalks did run for 2 years. Commission of Imagine I(dentity).C(ulture), (Image institute that documents the migrant history of this Bronx of Amsterdam)

2003 July 5th
The Hague. The script of a city, a summerjourney.
In commission of the centre of fine arts CBK Stroom in The Hague(www.stroom.nl). This tour brings the participants in minibusses to several scripted places as shoppingmalls, trainstations and cityhalls. The travellers are guided to undertake simple actions to bring the scripts to the surface . As they are travelling in different busses, they will be surprised by the actions of the unknown fellowtravelers

Alkmaar Jamwaving.
For one month I waved to every single driver in the Trafficjam together with a international group of students. By making eye contact and wave to every single cardriver we check the atmosphere in all the cars, lorries and busses that went pass by at rush hours. The different ways in which people respond, gives us an insight how people relate to the situation they are in. It helps us getting an insight in the possibilities, disadvantages and advantages of the traffic jam. It is a new form of participatory journalism I recently started to develop. Result: Based on the outcome of the research we created a traffic jam cd, where among others one can listen to a lesson in traffic jam flirting, where fitness exersises for in the car are programmed and one can enjoy a fifteen minutes track in cursing on the traffic.

The Compartment/ de Coupé.
A real train compartment placed in the hallway of the newly built wing of a nursing home for dementing elderly. Six comfortable seats are arranged as though in a train. The windows are video screens on which a Dutch polder landscape can be seen passing by. Projectsite www.bies.nu shows the process: six hour workshops of felting in several groups to find the right question the artwork should be based upon. the workshops revealed that the residents need a pleasant form of passivity. The right to do nothing. A work by Lino Hellings and Yvonne Dröge Wendel commisioned by Skor and Zorginstelling Pieter van Foreest.
Price best practise by Virtueel Platform for The Coupé.

Amersfoort The Dahlia Garden.
Two Glassvisuals (cibachroom in two layers of hardened glass) of two by one meter. Railway station Amersfoort Northside. Art for the quarter Het Soesterkwartier. For one summer I was entrusted the key of the Dahlia Garden Society. I was allowed to pick flowers in every single garden. Select the most beautifull flowers for the artwork. The dahlia's float above a manipulated aerial photo of the quarter.

Amsterdam The Easter Bear.
A walk of fame for the neighbourhood. Seven stars of casted copper each in the form of the city of Amsterdam are placed in between the tram rails. The texts and images reveal parts of the recent and future history of my own neighbourhood. The artwork refers to the fact that the rails is build upon the old citywall of Amsterdam. The stars are seen from the platforms and disappear as soon as the tram arrives.

Amersfoort Vathorst Grows
Casco houses as a temporary filmset, the kickoff of a website as an interactive documentary. In the last block of houses ready before the summerbreak, we situated filmstudio's managed by local cultural initiatives. In every studio a young filmmaker, trained by us, filmed clips with the people of Vathorst about their life in the quarter. The clips of the day were shown on a big screen in the evening and uploaded on the site right away. Vathorst grows is the title. We left the site in the hands of a local cultural initiative, clips can be added during the coming 10 years as the quarter is expanding from 3000 till 30000 people. Concept Lino Hellings and Menno Grootveld, website Michael Murtaugh. www.vathorstgroeit.nl

Amsterdam My teacher
Two hundred sandblasted children drawings on four glass panels in the schoolhall. The panels measure 843 mm wide and 2705 mm high. Every child of the Merkelbachschool has drawn his/her own teacher from the front, the back and the side. Of every child one drawing is sandblasted on one of the four glass panels. The glasspanels can be seen from two sides: the schoolhall and the corridor through the social cultural department of the council. For the people linked to the school as well as for the outsiders there is a lot to see: How every child draws her/his teacher completely different, how the small children draw so different from the older ones of and how the teachers differ from one to the other anyway.

Amsterdam The School with the most windows
A website and a theatre performance. The 'first open air school for the healthy child' in the Cliostraat in Amsterdam – a famous design of architect Jan Duiker – has its 75th anniversary. To celebrate this we constructed, in collaboration with all the pupils and their teachers, the building and its secret stories on the internet. Visitors of the website can wander around the drawn building and find the stories the children gathered. The visitor not only meets the pupils but also sees the neighbours, or experiences the little creatures living in and around the school. The website, www.deschoolmetdemeesteramen.nl, was put online in April 2005. Even the url, meaning 'the school with most windows', was thought of by the children. Based on the stories of the site a theatrical performance was staged, where again all children took part. Idea Lino Hellings in collaboration with Emer Beamer (interactive desgn) and Septimia Kuhlmann (theatrical acts).

Wilnis, San Pedro.
A small suburb build in 1995 with 307 houses and 3 schools. Research has been undertaken to connect with the place and its inhabitants. The quarter has refused art before I got the commission. I knitted a three meter high cactus, which was casted in bronze and placed on the roundabout in between three elementary schools.

Second Exloërmond Moving House
Eighty public workers as photomodel. An integrated piece of art in a newly build firebrigade/rubbish dump/public works garage. Four glassvisuals (cibachromes in between two panels of glass) of two square meters each, of the public workers on the locations that are going to be demolished (a fire brigade, a rubbish dump and the public grounds in the middle of the two villages). The pictures are taken in a round mirror, giving a 360 degree image of the spot. Five lightboxes with panoramic photos representing the publicworkers in the canteens that are closed down, are placed in the new canteens.

In the past ten years I have developed a teaching method that defines the transition area between the different forms of art (mostly as a teacher at the Rietveld Academy in the department of Time Based Arts) With this method I educate people in a new form of craftsmanship. A craftsmanship with which you make interactive art. From the standpoint of the maker, an interactive work begins when a maker designs the form of the work, the context of the work, AND possible experiences or perceptions for the others that come in contact with his work. In other words, we begin to speak about interactive works when a maker considers the critical context an intrinsic part of the work.

Research on undisciplined art in the Nederlands
Undisciplined art = art that cannot be counted to one of the different disciplines, that does not necessarily takes place in spaces meant for art. It creates situations which have nothing to do with art as such: new theory, ten examples and reactions from the experts. Download here the Dutch version of Ongedisciplineerde Kunst Nederland.
Architecture of Interaction
Toolkit (or grammar) by and for interactive art practioners.
An international group of artists is working out a toolkit for colleagues, critics and commisioners. The idea is to supply models with which artworks using interactive working methods/ creating interactive experiences, can be described and discussed. Presentations in London Chisenhale gallery, Amsterdam Veemvloer and Amsterdam Stedelijk museum. Core group Yvonne Dröge Wendel, Klaas Kuitenbrouwer and Lino Hellings. www.architectureofinteraction.net

Annual workshops
'The Making of..'
for Master of film Amsterdam
A highly practical workshop in which you visualize your work in progress ten years from now and brainstorm in small groups on what you can do in the next hour to fulfil the aims formulated in this visualization. Every new group of ten students meet me for a week in my studio.
The Happy Presenter
for PHD in the Arts Royal academy The Hague and University of Leiden
The goal of The Happy Presenter Workshop is to enjoy talking about your work in public and in private. By practicing and evaluating presentations we will develop a presenting tool you can use every time somebody comes up to you and asks: 'What is your work about?' Be it your mother or a curator. Be it at an opening or at a birthday party. Together with Hans Aarsman.
