Out now: the cahier ‘Silky Thoughts’ by collage artist Tinca Veerman. The cahier is issued on the occasion of her solo exhibition in Verbeke Foundation (2 May – 21 October 2021) and published in a limited and numbered edition.
I wrote the introductory text ‘On seeing things in things’ about Veerman’s work process, looking, interpretation and signification.
Out now: the Modern Classics edition of We Are Proud to Present… by Pulitzer Prize winner Jackie Sibblies Drury. An incredibly good and topical play about a group of young actors who want to make a play about the Herero and Nama genocide in German South-West Africa. I had the honour of writing a comprehensive introduction for this edition, in which I combine a description of the historical context with an intuitive exploration of the underlying theme of race and representation.

I wrote an essay for the beautiful publication that accompanies the exhibition You Know I Am Not There by artist Danielle Lemaire, an exploration of the world of British singer-songwriter Nick Drake in Stedelijk Museum Breda. The exhibition was set to open in December 2020 and will open once the current lockdown ends. Can’t wait!

|From 8 October 2020 – 4 February 2021 (extended) I present my solo exhibition ‘When Memories Become Dreams’ in the Zuid-Afrikahuis. I made a series of darkroom prints of damaged lantern slides from the collection of the Zuid-Afrikahuis to explore the phenomenon of ‘patina’. The series and accompanying essay were made especially for the edited volume Magic Visions (soon to be published).
