HOW = IT NOW 2014

Today the big group show and auction opens that wants to give an overview of the fine arts in East Holland. For this show I made a work in collaboration with Willem Bierman, a well known writer and poet from Apeldoorn. He’s the founder, editor and publisher of PRADO, a absurd magazine. Willem made the picture above, I reacted on this one in the picture below. Translated: The editorial staff of PRADO searching for copy at the station in Altea, Spain./Bas Fontein searching for the spirit of Willem Bierman at Apeldoorn Central. (For the complete list of works in the auction: how=it now 2014.)
