With the focus on autonomy and mobility he plays the guinea pig of his own experiments. New ambiguous ventures with the San and the Inuit people will bring a new facet of his work to life. As he creates low threshold situations, aiming the works to be accessible to a truly broad audience, these distant cultures are ready to receive him and offered to host his projects.
Thanks to his curatorial experiences, he also invents and tests innovative mediation formats that lead us to experience new models of exhibition making that are relevant to our time. With his interactive art and symbiotic adventures, Kalliwoda brings romanticism and utopia into the reality of the here and now.
"In an inspiring way, it (WiaS) deals with most current problems in our contemporary society while involving new technologies,... in a critical, yet playful way. Therefore, I consider this project to be particularly worthy of promotion."
“These different kind of knowledge production and these different ways of approaching the world from the artistic and the scientific side merged into one project. A kind of hybrid between art and science. Its a new practice where art and science come together.”
"A challenge that we are directly confronted with when looking at urgent issues in sustainability, exploitation of natural resources, ... that take into account the unpredictable variables, or ‘messiness’, of our world. Visionary and thought provoking interdisciplinary projects, such as World in a Shell, are key to facilitate such developments."
"I recommend (the TUDelft) giving Hans Kalliwoda an honorary degree."
"This was the same time for me in Delft (TU), I am working there since 1990, that I met two special persons, professor Wubbo Okkels and Hans Kalliwoda."
"I can envision the Artwork to fit in all sorts of international manifestations with the focus on contemporary issues. The project goes beyond the restrictions of national borders and in a pavilion context, one could describe the artist and the artwork to be Roma. You may be so kind to consider my suggestion to see if there are possibilities in supporting this installation within your decision-making capacities."
