A preserving ode to languages that are on the verge of extinction

This project was part of DDW 2020

When a language is lost, the connection that people have with a specific place and its community weakens. For Not in so many words in Kröller-Müller, Fillip Studios selected 145 languages from the UNESCO atlas of the world’s languages in danger, including Éven, Chantal, Trumai, Waima’s and Savosavo.

Every day a unique drawing was created in the Kröller-Müller museum this year, whereby a language that initially could only be under-stood by the indigenous community is translated into an image that can be understood and experienced by all.
