‘Koffieruis’ is an audio tour through a public coffee house.

During ‘My Way or the Highway’, the visitors will see the documentation of the graduation project and have the chance to discover it again themselves.

Coffee houses have played a vital role in societies and cultures throughout the world. In Europe, it made the Enlightenment possible. In The Hague, they reduced alcohol abuse. In Vienna, they facilitated a place to debate culture. But why? What is a coffee house, and what makes these places so special?


‘Koffieruis’ is one of the 5 works exhibited in 5 containers on top of the A2 tunnel during the graduation event ‘My Way or the Highway’.

Check the facebook event for current information.
