#theorganisation is founded in 2011 and aims to free knowledge and means for the cultural innovation of our society. Where corporate control focussus on economic benefits
for their shareholders #theorganisation tries to facilitate direct control through active citizenship over their shared and lived surroundings.
#theorganisation conference with the theme swarm potential was visually based on the
appearance of the Bilderberg conferences, a yearly meeting of politicians,
CEO's, scientists and other influential people. The
outcome of these meetings is always surrounded by secrecy and the
selection procedure of guests far from democratic.
museum would be turned in a three day conference location
realized with the support of local entrepreneurs. A large nation wide
campaign would call citizens for submissions of there innovative ideas.
A local board (people from Breda) would select 147 participants to this summit,
the amount of people joining the Bilderberg conference in 2012. These selected people would receive a personal invitation
to attend this secret meeting. Police force will carefully and radically
protect the conference site while inside a formal as well as informal program
connects the potential of the swarm. Outside sympathisers and protesters against
the new world order would appear in the street.
In February 2013, after
almost a year of hard work this project was unfortunately cancelled
by the director of the museum due to a lack of financial support.
