Over the past few years various international museums organized exhibitions dedicated to the subject of play. One of them was The Playground Project in Kunsthalle Zürich (spring 2016), curated by the political scientist and urban planner Gabriela Burkhalter. In 2008 she started an ongoing research project and online archive on the history of playgrounds: www.architekturfuerkinder.ch. She made various exhibitions on the basis of this research and manages the archive of Group Ludic, whose Buiteltuinen (rough and tumble playgrounds) are the subject of a Stroom window display.

Part of program Stroom School: Céline Condorelli: Proposals for a Qualitative Society (Spinning).
This program is made possible through the generous support of the Mondriaan Fund, BankGiro Loterij Fonds, BPD Cultuurfonds and the City of The Hague.
