Through the ages, the church has been a symbol of community life, marking the center of the city. To spark conversations about the intersection of church and community, we built an inflatable church with cheap materials and occupied the public space, blowing up the church on various locations in inner city Amsterdam.

We wanted to engage passersby in dialogue about what church and community mean to them. In response, many joined the discussion and wanted to sit in the church.

This project was realized by the art community ‘Nieuwevaart’.
