Saturday, 29th May 2021, 3 – 5.30 pm @ Westpark
in the future, let's say the year 2050.
The world is by and large an ecologically just and balanced
Imagine the world and say 1 word you associate with it.
In biology, interstitium is the name given to the spaces between cells
that cushion our skin and where the supplying pathways run. House of
is what we call where we come together: All of us
weaving the social interstitium, the in-between spaces and care pathways
that connect us and our environment. This reproductive work is often
rendered invisible and not acknowledged in our society. At House of
, we focus on this and gather, practice, and strengthen
it. We play a game in small groups where a shared future is forged through
the telling of fictional memories.

This sheet of paper is both a pattern and a game manual.
We play with our friends, neighbors and colleagues.
