Looking back on The Pop-Up City Live
On Tuesday 21st of May, the moment had finally arrived: in De Brakke Grond, Amsterdam, the internationally trailblazing blog The Pop-Up City went live. A live blog? Yes, that’s right: there was music, there were Amsterdam-based bloggers that came to share their thoughts on our interview couch, a chef came to prepare hors d’oeuvre live on the night with all manner of delicious urban herbage…
A whirlwind of short, inspiring presentations, brought impeccably to fruition by the men behind The Pop-Up City: Jeroen Beekmans and Joop de Boer. All this in the midst of the citybooks exhibition, which ran for all to admire until the 2nd of June. Saskia de Coster joined us specially for the occasion to read from her citybook A Hundred-and-forty Kilos of Love, accompanied by a genuine Google-maps tour. Andrea Galiazzo pulled up a chair to tell us about the city portrait that he made of Venice.
