The Haagsemarkt in Princenhage was once a meeting place for the local population and farmers and horticulturists from the surrounding area. It was the central place for parties, markets and shopping. Residents got their water from the pump (the rich from one and the poor from the other), travellers to and from Breda, Antwerp, Bergen op Zoom and Rotterdam stopped and exchanged the latest news. Vincent van Gogh once also walked here when he visited his uncle’s studio. And perhaps Mozart too, on his journey from Antwerp to Rotterdam. We want to retell the history of 1900 by virtually recreating the village from that time in 3D, so that you can walk through the streets from the screen and VR glasses and hear the stories that belong to that history.
