At the Art Academy in Utrecht (HKU) I teach Photography to 2nd year students Fine Art. To get a official didactic degree, I am currently taking a course. Therefore I developed a new teaching method: The Golden Camera. The students had to work in pairs on a documentary assignment. Within five weeks they had to make a concept, collect the material, make the selection and their presentation. There was only one trophy for the best project and each team could vote. The students were keen and sharp and the results stunning. Very nice to see how such a teaching method works. I am very proud of all my students !
This is the last week to visit the Undercover exhibition in St. Petersburg in Russia about Dutch photo books. Some of my books are included.
Local TV and radio station RTV Apeldoorn made this interview with me. It’s about conceptual art and frankfurters. It’s only in Dutch.
Today in the mail came the agenda from printing company Ando (the Hague) that I made with Ingeborg Scheffers. Ingeborg created the design and I wrote the texts. I think the result is really great !
For Cascolab I made this bar that is trying to make a connection between art and visitors of the local market. Art is turned into coffee, coffee into art. The title is Kop of Koffie, that sounds like ‘cup of coffee’, but actually means ‘Head or coffee’. Visitors can choose from 120 different flavors, like: biceps coffee, coffee lupus and coffee barf.
