What we had has not yet been / Wat we hadden is nog niet geweest

Description (in English): 

Originally conceived as an interactive installation for the 2007 Literature and New Media project in the Waag, Amsterdam, this production by Jan Baeke and Alfred Marseille mixes poetry, moving images and sound in a movie directed by words, and talks about memory, longing, the misguided monologue and the importance of the kitchen in modern society.

Images and sounds are mainly drawn from the Prelinger archives.

This version is an entirely new English language edit made for the 2011 Beijing Book Fair and also featured at the 2011 Noorderzon festival in Groningen (Netherlands).
