Description At the heart of the festival on the Spuiplein stands the ‘Vortex’, a large pavilion designed by the architects of Raumlaborberlin. The ‘vortex’ is made from a heap of discarded everyday objects from the people in the hague. It also incorporates furniture from several cultural institutions that will cease to exist due to the budget cuts by the dutch government. The building resembles a large whirlwind that draws everything in, which symbolizes the transitory nature of our society. After all, the ‘vortex’ will disappear once the festival is over. The ‘vortex’ is constructed over the course of several weeks in collaboration with refunc, the collective which - during previous editions of todaysart - has proven to be most creative in the field of garbage architecture.
