The raw energy and imagination of the everyday
Volksrekorders is an artists initiative based in Rotterdam (NL) with a special focus on the individual experience of the public domain. We are a group of 9 artists, from different approaches of artistic expression: sculpture, painting, writing, photography and graphic design. But when joining forces as Volksrekorders, we translate our individual investigations, in relation to the larger public sphere, into numerous short films. These short films converge into a series of episodes that we broadcast via the Internet TV platform.
Through our platform we ultimately want try to create a public space that is porous, and not divided. Volksrekorders wants to record, archive, and react on the compelling energy of the everyday.
