HERE TO STAY! UTRECHT 900
Utrecht City Archive
temoprary exhibition 2022
For the 900th birthday of the city of Utrecht we have created a engaging and crowded Birthday-Party arround the presentation of the 900 year old documents that manifest the foundation of the city. Welcome to the Party!
A large artistic floor-map of Utrecht, created by graphitiartist Mick la Rock and her team sets the stage to meet 900 selected Utrechters trough time. Learn why they have come and why they have decided to stay.
By scanning the QR code with their phone-camera, a short audiostory will start and the guests can learn more about the persons and why they have come to Utrecht.
We also ask our guests why they have come to live in Utrecht.
As the highlight of the show, the Guests will encounter the "Stadsrecht". These preacious Documents are 900 years old and manifest the Foundation of the City of Utrecht in 1122.
When the Guests first enter the round and almost sacret space, a short audiovisual show will start with images on the wall of Utrechters trough time in combination with a voiceover and dramatic Music.
The 'Birthday Party' and its guests are also spread out trough the city.
