Thank you all who have been there, who took photos with the banner #menofquality, for participating in the performance during the opening night and for the wonderful conversations we’ve had about the works in the gallery stand!!
Who knew! I didn’t manage to send in some new works but my work was still part of the Nasty Women Portugal 2019 exhibition at Galeria Monumental in Lisbon! Apparently they still had a print of mine and hung it on the wall, lol. And it even sold.
Stay in touch with NWP about their fight for women’s rights and fundraising through their facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/nastywomenportugal/
I wrote an article (in Dutch) about my stay in Tehran, Iran for Jegens&Tevens.

So I was back in Nieuwegein for the lecture/artist talk-ish thing Het slot van Noord-Korea about my DPRK-film, together with Casper van der Veen who also just published a new book, De Kim-dynastie (the Kim-dynasty). Gina van den Berg hosted the evenening.
Thank you De Tweede Verdieping for having me! It’s always a joy to collaborate with you ^^
Look at me, hiding behind that microphone.

I made a new performance piece for the Unnoticed Art Festival 2016, titled The Gaze. More info soon on my website!
Ohh, finally an update from my side!
Things have been rather hectic the last couple months: I moved to a new place, moved my studio (again…), and I started working on 2 new projects. Hence the silence on this blog.
Also my website needs a major update, but hey, I’m working on it! (;
One of the other things that have been going on behind the scenes is that the Design My Privacy exhibition (featuring my project Rogier) is travelling to Z33 in Hasselt, Belgium! Yay!
The show opens next Saturday at 19:30hr. Insert lazy copy-paste from the Z33 website:

Design my Privacy
Nowadays, we continually share data: a message via WhatsApp, a picture on Instagram, an update on Facebook or an e-mail through Gmail. With whom do we really share this data? And how can we make sure that our personal data stay strictly personal?
This exhibition addresses issues of online privacy and digital surveillance. Next to several historical examples of encrypting, ‘Design my Privacy’ also shows some surprising contemporary strategies by more than 35 young designers and artists to maintain control over our data.

7:30 p.m. Welcome
