Nicolás Jaar and the Shock Forest Group
‘These livelihoods make worlds too – and they show us how to look around rather than ahead.’
Chapter 2WO Public Programme
Shock Forest Group (2019) is an international research team consisting of architects, cartographers, linguists, coders, urban planners, sound makers, biologists, designers and engineers. It is an experiment in open research, where the research categories surface as the research develops. It is also an experiment in alternative education, a classroom without a teacher, where learning emerges as a product of polyphony.

Join us on Saturday 5 October for a walk with tree expert Hans Kaljee and learn more about the unique trees and their value on the Hembrug site. Hans Kaljee is tree consultant at the Municipality of Amsterdam and co-author of 'Iep of Olm'.
The investigative nature of Chapter 2WO translates into a series of explorations about the Hembrugterrein, which aim to increase our knowledge of the site and the programme's theoretical framework. The Chapter 2WO explorations are focused on active knowledge and take the form of a participatory walk, an associative narrative or a practical workshop.
