Ringland is an initiative for cleaner air in Antwerp. The Ringland project is a 6 billion euro investment which proposes a large-scale sustainable urban development focussing on a complete redesign of the highway system in the city of Antwerp. Extraordinarily, the research underlying this complex infrastructure project has been entirely organized by local citizens in bottom-up fashion. Detailed research studies, executed by external academics, are financed through crowdfunding and subsequently presented to the government. The Ringland project hence pioneers a new kind of societal interaction between citizens, scientists and policy makers.

This sunday the beneficial exhibition and auction  A City is not a Road takes place at auction house Bernaerts, Antwerpen.
100 International artists offered work for the project. From my project IMG_ two works will be auctioned. The exhibition is on display from May 19th until May 22nd.
