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.

In the last months, Nicolás Jaar and his Shock Forest Group, have conducted extensive research into the monumental place that now houses cultural center Het HEM. This resulted into an exhibition full of special stories about Zaandam.
