polder tv

Polder TV shows, discusses, and unpacks ideas about the changing relationships between cities and the countryside. Join a cast of artists and regional organizations speculating about contemporary meanings of heritage, gastronomy, and well-being.


 
Business is booming for a brand-new polder travel agency. Reservations are pouring in, and the Polder Hostess is trying to cope. Tourists coming from the city are eager to learn what the Noordoostpolder has to offer. Five artists and designers are forging big plans for 2022. Will the Polder hostess manage to pioneer with both cosmopolitans and agrarians?
 
Polder TV marks the beginning of the Polder Triennial, an initiative by architect Rianne Makkink, strategist Willem Schenk and curator Jules van den Langenberg.
 Polder TV is a fictional series of five episodes shot in a romanticized German landscape and the rational Dutch polder fields. The project is a collaboration between Polder Triennial and Design Akademie Saaleck / Marzona Stiftung.
