Sunday the 28th of January I held an artist talk at Museum Meermanno, The Hague. My project on the 17yo Rogier has been part of their exhibition The Art of Reading (De kunst van het lezen).
Curator Paul van Capelleveen wrote a blog entry about the afternoon:
The Art of Reading is on view until the 4th of March this year.
Project Rogier, on view until the 4th of March.
My project Rogier (De drie maanden uit het leven van Rogier / Three months in the life of Rogier) will be on view at Museum Meermanno, as part of the exhibition ‘De kunst van lezen. Van William Kentridge tot Wikipedia’/The art of reading. From William Kentridge to Wikipedia.
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:
27.03.2016 – 29.05.2016
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.

Special thanks goes to the Noorderlicht crew for making this exhibition look amazing, and the Mondriaan Fund for supporting my work!
The Rogier project will be exhibited at the When Art Meets Science #1: Data Rush exhibition, as part of Noorderlicht Fotofestival in Groningen!
When Art Meets Science (WAMS) is organising a set of side events as part of the international fotofestival Noorderlicht. The theme of this year’s edition of the festival is “Data Rush”, exploring the tension between freedom and control, privacy and surveillance in the virtual world.
WAMS is organising an exhibition of objects and installations reflecting on the theme, a debate between scientists and artists on the theme and the relation between art and science in general, as well as a series of lectures exploring the theme from different perspectives.
The aim of the project ‘WAMS #1: Data Rush’ is to further increase the social awareness about these developments, and to boost both scientific and artistic developments in this domain.
WAMS has selected nine artists to exhibit their object and installations as part of the larger fotofestival Noorderlicht. The venue is the Old Sugar Factory, Energieweg 10, Groningen.
The following artists are part of this exhibition.
Opening tomorrow: TKW#5 (temporary art store) at In De Ruimte, Utrecht, The Netherlands.
All upbringings from this temporary art store will go to livebuild.org, a charity organization. Grab your chance to get a copy of the project Rogier book at a 30% discount, and feel good about it because you’re supporting a water project in Lobagne.

…and is officially registered as a publication from now on!
So funny, I also had to register as an official publisher before I could request an ISBN.
Click >here< to read more about the Rogier project on my portfolio website.
You can still order your very own copy of the book for only €15,-. Feel free to contact me of you’re interested in obtaining one.
This afternoon I’ll be giving an artist talk-lecture-thing about my Rogier project at Kunstenlab, Deventer (NL). Start: 15:00hr. It’s also the last day the exhibition is open for public, so if you’re around, feel free to go and have a look!
I know, that’s a hardly readable screenshot made with my iPad, but hey, it’s better than nothing!
Jeanne Prisser wrote about my project ‘Rogier’ after she visited the exhibition ‘Watching (over) me’ at Kunstenlab, Deventer.
Opening: 4th of April, 17:00hr.
DE KIJKDOOS is proud to host solo exhibition Rogier by Joyce Overheul.
DE KIJKDOOS COMMENT by Suzie Herman & Janneke van der Vloed.
Rogier shared so much about himself online that it was possible to base a novel on it.
DE KIJKDOOS would be pleased to see you at the opening on Friday 4th April 2014 at 5pm till 7pm.
Reading out loud by Joyce Overheul at 6pm
The book will be available for a great price!
From the 4th of April until the 4th of May my project Rogier will be on view at De Kijkdoos, Amsterdam (NL). During the exhibition the entire novel I wrote about the 17-yo Twitter user will be displayed page by page, giving passersby the opportunity to read the entire thing.
Suzie Herman and Janneke van der Vloed will write a commenting text about the project that will be on display at the exhibition site as well.
Opening: 4th of April, 17:00hr.

(Unfortunately for the non-Dutchies, the blog post is in Dutch only.)
Yes, I’m calling the then 17-year-old Rogier a project now. The former title in Dutch wasn’t really working for me anymore. ‘De drie maanden uit het leven van Rogier’, similar to the title of the book, didn’t really do the trick on my website anymore.
I was doing a google search via Safari (where I’m not logged in on any Google- or other account) and came across this blog post by Irene about my project:
I like it! She really understood the project from what I read in the blog post, which is always nice. I haven’t come across hateful blog posts yet, by the way (but lots of Tweets with mild threats).
(Unfortunately for the non-Dutch readers, the blog post is in Dutch only)
Last Saturday I was interviewed about my book project for the local radio show ‘Alles Mag… Op Zaterdag’. (Everything’s allowed on Saturday)
Last Friday I had an interview with Rogier (from my latest project) and Omroep Brabant, a local tv and radio station.
