Third Space Foundation
Art as room for practice
Building Conversation is a Third Space Foundation project, established in early 2015 to support theater projects by Lotte van den Berg. Third Space, the third space, is neither the existing physical reality nor is it fantasy. It is the area in which alternative scenarios to reality become possibilities. It is the area in which everything comes together, an area that brings together extremes without eliminating the difference.
We create temporary public spaces within the framework of art. Spaces between and among people, in which we elevate our social (in)ability to a subject and initiate an interpersonal process. Not theaters, or museums, but studios rehearsal rooms and sketchbooks are the most valuable spaces within the arts. Our goal is to offer this room of practice to the public.
Building Conversation is made possible by Fonds Podiumkunsten and Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunst.
