AUDIO TOUR: There is Something I’ve been Meaning to Ask You...
As part of ‘Agency & Machine’, Gill Baldwin is launching a revised edition of “There is something I’ve been meaning to ask you…”, her alternative audio tour through the city center of Rotterdam. Brought together by interlinking a series of interviews with architects, designers, and A.I. researchers on the increase of surveillance (technologies) in our daily lives.
Originally comprised during the summer months, when the pandemic, track-and-trace paranoia, and potests started to emerge throughout the world, the audio tour has grown ever more relevant. Taking you to architectural highlights along the way, the tour gives you an intimate and personal look into the places and structures you think you know and allows you to reconsider your everyday surroundings as active sites of surveillance. As Roodkapje remains closed still, this audio tour is a perfect way to get out of your house and into ‘Agency & Machine’.

AGENCY & MACHINE Directly inspired by the work and research of HCA-Artist Gill Baldwin, Agency and Machine asks the question what happens when artists, musicians, designers, and other creatives interact with technology, hard- and software, and Artificial Intelligence. Through all events attached to Agency & Machine, Roodkapje aims to challenge you to think further about what is human and what is machine, and who, in the end, is actually in control.
ROODKAPJE’S HAMBURGER COMMUNITY The Hamburger Community programs of Roodkapje provide two yearlong development trajectories for five young, talented artists (Art), and five aspiring event programmers (Live). Throughout the year both the Hamburger Community of Art and Live collectively work towards five interdisciplinary programmes built around the work and research of the individual Hamburger Community artists. During their stay at Roodkapje the artists and residents will receive guidance and support from professionals from their respective fields, and through an in-depth trajectory that is aimed at further developing their professional skills and positions.
SPECIAL THANKS TO Roodkapje’s Hamburger Community of Art was made possible with the kind support of Stichting Bevordering van Volkskracht, Stichting Ondernemersbelangen Rotterdam, Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds, Stichting Elise Mathilde Fonds, Fleur Groenendijk Foundation, and the Gemeente Rotterdam.
