{id="919" title="Clouds 7"} VROM building (Jan Hoogstad 1992) Den Haag

Clouds 7 VROM 1992 - 2015
this voice-sound installation in the c-block elevators of the Ministry of Housing, Planning and environment in Den Haag, does not exist anymore.
Due to other destinations and renovations of this highly experimental building (Jan Hoogstad 1990) along with stricter technical safety conditions for the lift shafts, the installation had to be dismantled.
It was installed in 1992 as the result of a 1% commission for art by Rijksgebouwendienst, and renovated in 2008.
