In their travels around the world the nomads shared their stories with locals. From one place to the next they spread science and art and took care of the cross-pollination of culture. They were a caravan of culture.
Nowadays we don't need messengers, we ship the world to our doorstep. With each container 37 cubic meter of Earth is transported to another continent. The world is being reshuffled like a giant game of Tetris. Along the way many blocks are lost. Yearly approximately the size of a quarter of Maastricht is lost at sea...But we are not so careless with the raw material. From all over the world fashion pioneers have brought their riches.
As our modern society becomes more frightened of foreign ways of thinking, the cargo remains unpacked. In order to be pollinated, we have to make the first step. Fifty temporary white cubes exhibit fashion, photography, jewellery and performative art.
