Whispers in Silence

Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art presents Whispers in Silence, the fifth event in the series of COOLSTOF projects realised by Kunstblock: five art institutions in the Cool district around the Witte de Withstraat.

Whispers in Silence is a performance created in collaboration with a group of young people from the neighbourhood Cool. Together with the Aalsmeersch Bloemenhuis they will meditate in complete silence about remembrance, war and peace.
