The former dairy factory in Kolderveen - relaunched itself as a venue for art, was in the months of September and October 2014 in the spirit of recreation and re-creation.

The activities of the October Child Month were linked to this project.

Thought-experiment | constituted by Edwin Stolk

In 1818 close by Kolderveen, the first test colony was founded by General Johannes van den Bosch. A small town was created, known today as Frederiksoord. This test colony could be seen as a thought-experiment, the idea of a model that would ensure living standards and end poverty. The experiment failed, but later it functioned as a model for today's welfare state in The Netherlands.

A project in collaboration with the The Society of Humanitarianism (Maatschappij van Weldadigheid), Defense, municipality Westerveld, Province of Drenthe and artist Edwin Stolk.

This proposal was developed during his residency in December 2014 at KiK (Art in Kolderveen). Edwin Stolk was there as part of the temporary residencies of the Mondriaan Fund. By researching the area he learned the history of de Maatschappij van Weldadigheid in Frederiksoord. This inspired him to come up with the plan of Base Camp 'Entre Nous'.
