The organisation conference

Swarm potential, September 2013
(not realised)

Swarm potential was a close in collaboration with MOTI, Museum of The Image, inhabitants, several corporations and other cultural organisations in the Breda area. Expert team; Mieke Gerritzen, Renée Frissen, Loek Grootjans, Sarah Sluimer, Robbert van Heuven.

#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.

MOTI 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.
