VISITING MARK BRUSSE IN PARIS
Returned from a short trip to Paris on September 17.-19. 2018. Visited artist Mark Brusse in his studio. We selected several great paintings and sculptures for his exhibition next year in Museum Het Valkhof in Nijmegen. A retrospective of 60 years of artistic practice.
Cycling tour from Berlin to Waldsieversdorf on September 9. 2018. Together with Bas van der Schot. We visited the summer house of artist John Heartfield. He lived in this house during the summer months from 1952 till 1968. The house, situated in a beautiful area of the Märkische Schweiz, 50 km east of Berlin, was suggested to him by poet and writer Bertolt Brecht, who lived in the nearby village of Buckow.
From Berlin to Nijmegen, by bike! :-)
