Utrecht, The Netherlands

This wall was built following a suggestion from history student Felix Zielinski. She suggested introducing the art project ‘Before I Die I Want To…’ by artist Candy Chang, to De Uithof, the university campus of Utrecht University (Netherlands). The University was very enthusiastic about this idea and drafted a proposal for a wall in the campus centre which could be used for the art project. In the summer of 2014, the wall was created.

Felix hopes that the project will enable students to think about what they really want to achieve in life. “It is also an almost childlike and simple concept that nevertheless manages to brighten and enliven the public space. Maybe it will bring more people into contact with each other, which is something that was among the principles of Candy Chang; to create social cohesion.”
