Tales of space time and everyday life

Tales of space, time and everyday life

Reporting space, time and everyday life in the Delta is an itinerant film club that investigates the natural, social, and spatial transitions of the Netherlands before and after the execution of the Delta Works by means of motion pictures.

The documentaries of the screening Tales of space, time and everyday Life show how water engineering projects have affected society and space. The subsequent talk focuses on the way philosophy, technology and storytelling are intertwined when advancing scientific knowledge.
