-//kingsday 2016 the House of the Apostates. we went to two neighboorhoods in Amsterdam amd asked people to donate waste for the House of the Apostates(huis der Afvalligen) where Inhabitiants live before they are electrocuted,​ gassed or buried. If they donated something, I asked for the criteria to be submitted in the House. different criteria were mentioned: shape, seize, history, esthetics. when I asked if only beautiful inhabitants or handicaped or small inhabitiants should be permitted two people in my multicultural( is this stil a word one can use?) neighborhood mentioned that everybody should be admitted. In the "white middle class area" nobody said so. Of course this is no statistic investigation. It good very well be chance. But it could also be that people from other countries still take care of the elderly at home or may be they know what is is to be standing "​outside",​ one step apart. It is an interesting methodology for a social scientist to use. People are easely approached and all started conversations about waste. So sociologists and waste innovators: if you ask the right questions..//​.+//kingsday 2016 the House of the Apostates. we went to two neighboorhoods in Amsterdam amd asked people to donate waste for the House of the Apostates(huis der Afvalligen) where Inhabitiants live before they are electrocuted,​ gassed or buried.

  Irene Janze and several of the artists participating in the Amsterdam workshop are an artist collective known as Buro  jan--‐ZE. For the final Amsterdam smARTcities and waste pop up, Buro  jan--‐ZE made an exhibition for the smARTcities and waste in an old building, Zeeburgerdijk 112 in Amsterdam in where Buro jan_ZE temporarily rents a studio. The Exhibition was open during the “Open studios Centrum--‐oost”,​ 21st-22nd May2016. ​  ​Occasionally performances /​participatory events, were also held for people visiting the gallery.  Irene Janze and several of the artists participating in the Amsterdam workshop are an artist collective known as Buro  jan--‐ZE.

-This final event was a culmination of themes and artwork developed by Irene Janze , Netty Gelijsteenand ​the other artists involved in Buro  jan--‐ZE- Maria Louisa Vandenput,​Ida Voorthuis and Ariaan van Walsum, most of whom also actively participated in the smARTcities [[amsterdam|Amsterdam workshop]] held on April 28th  2016  and indeed have been part of the delivery of previous pop ups.  It is fascinating to see how these artists are working with, and critically exploring, the concept of “waste”,​ and it is exciting to see how the workshop itself has been part of the “incubation period” of developing ideas. So there is a back-and forth- dialogue here, which is also involving the public’s perspective,​ through these “open source”, pop up, participatory practices.+This final event was a culmination of themes and artwork developed by Irene Janze , Netty Gelijsteen and the other artists involved in Buro  jan-ZE- Maria Louisa Vandenput, Ida Voorthuis and Ariaan van Walsum, most of whom also actively participated in the smARTcities [[amsterdam|Amsterdam workshop]] held on April 28th  2016  and indeed have been part of the delivery of previous pop ups.  It is fascinating to see how these artists are working with, and critically exploring, the concept of “waste”,​ and it is exciting to see how the workshop itself has been part of the “incubation period” of developing ideas.

-Ariaan, Netty myself and other apostates popped up at the Art boulevard in the Wertheimpark festival next to the Hortus in Amsterdam. Some made waste sculptures, some participated in project of netty who invited the public in Dutch: "is er iets wat je aan niks en niemand kwijt wil? Neem plaats en vertel het me dan zal ik het vereeuwigen."​ +Ariaan, Nettymyself and other apostates popped up at the Art boulevard in the Wertheimpark festival next to the Hortus in Amsterdam.

- ​Again,​ a very different public in comparison with publics at other occasions passed us by. Over all the public overhere produced no longer or hardly any waste at all.  They all sorted out their left overs and put them in different garbage bins. Conclusion from the public: waste has become a resource. ​Is that really ​so. Do we need more recycled plastic for instance? To add to the amount of plastic all ready existing? Or do we have to go for bioplastics? ​ Is recycling an answer to the waste problems? Or do we have to produce differently or may be less?
