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.
Opening on the 7th of February: the anniversary edition of De Belofte (“the promise”) exhibition series at Kunstliefde. This year the De Belofte-programme exists for 10 years and this exhibition shows you previous participants of the last 10 years, including meeee! Yoohoo!
There’s an opening party on the 8th of February starting at 16:00hr at Kunstliefde. The exhibition will be opened by Frank Koolen, artist and tutor at the Utrecht School of the Arts, who lectured many of the participating artists (again, including meeee).
At this exhibition the video I made while I was in the DPRK will be shown, together with some souvenirs, an essay/travel journal-thingy I wrote for this exhibition and a podcast describing all the things I was not allowed to capture on video.
Hope to see you there!! It’s going to be a great exhibition.

So in the end I made drawings at the Valkhof Museum (theme: Pyongyang) and at De Dromaai (theme: cats).
The cat drawings turned out to be a huge success! I overheard people talking about them at a place which wasn’t even close to the actual drawings, so that’s great. I didn’t really get any further responses from the Valkhof Museum about the drawings about whether they liked them or not, except from the maintenance guys (who, luckily, thought they were pretty neat).

This week I’m a participating artist at The Big Draw in Nijmegen (NL), a festival about drawing.
I’ll be drawing shit at two locations this week; today I made a small series of drawings at the Valkhof Museum, since the drawing over there had to be finished before the festival starts (which is tomorrow), and from tomorrow until Sunday I’ll draw something on the window of the Dromaai.
Today I made some drawings about my trip to the DPRK. I still have to take decent photos, so until that point you’ll have to look at my wacky phone photos…
