This construction made by architect Alexander Lefebre and artist Jetske Verhoeven popped up during the alternative art event Kunstvlaai in Amsterdam. It’s a small temporary movie theatre used to show a film by Jetske Verhoeven about abandoned places.

The open spaces in the walls of this cottage provide an additional atmosphere supporting the projected film. Check out the (Dutch) video below to find out more about Upon.
