a sensory experience of journalism
We invite you to join us on a walk to trace how this group of journalists perceive, articulate, engage, embrace, challenge, are receptive to and give form to the ‘atmospheres’ of their workspace. Atmospheres is a central way in which we have looked at the newsroom and you can find more information on it here. On this walk, we explore the spatial, socio-cultural, rhythmic, tonal and somatic characteristics of Dagblad van het Noorden’s newsroom – through video, sound, text, and drawing. Employing artistic methods, we want to let you experience this newsroom together with us – giving you insight into the journalists’ lived experience of their profession as fundamentally interwoven with the idiosyncrasies of their workspace.
