Tip: ‘Open Codes’ in Karlsruhe

This exhibition is highly recommended by our good friend Charles Landry:  The ‘Open Codes’ project in Karlsruhe, Germany.

The exhibition, that started in October 2017, has recently entered its second round, which will last until June 2.

While the first phase ‘Open Codes. Living in Digital Worlds’ presented many varied examples of codes, from Morse code to genetic code, the second phase ‘Open Codes. The World as a Field of Data’ focuses on a world that is increasingly driven by data.  This second edition of Open Codes will show you this new world of fields of data in an abundance of examples. It opens to us a new horizon for humankind: transhumanism built on artificial intelligence. Go check it out!



Training: BHV

What to do in case of burns or accidents? This spring, Bureau Marineterrein will take on a ‘Bedrijfshulpverlening’ (BHV) course at the Marineterrein and invites community members to join in. Costs will be around 140 € per person. If you are interested to participate, please let us know before 31 March, via, and don’t forget to mention ‘BHV’.

Calendar: timeline of happenings in 2019

Here’s a list of events that are coming up.

Domestic: Take proper care of your waste

We need you to take proper care of separating your waste, not only for the sake of the environment but also because of the fact that Renewi will not empty the bins if they contain the wrong kind of waste.  It is quite simple: paper bins should solely contain paper. Glass bins only glass. Plastic bins only plastic. So, for instance, take out paper, glass and batteries from the plastic bags that carry those items.

Waste bins

  1. Paper bin: no plastic garbage bags, just paper and cardboard, please flatten all boxes
  2. Glass bin: no plastic garbage bags, just glass
  3. Plastic bin: all plastic waste and plastic bags, nothing else
  4. Other waste
  5. Bin Polo: batteries and toners

  • 003 A (a plastic bin is ordered)
  • 002
  • 024/025 (a plastic bin is ordered)
