Although Ikea rejected a 21.000-attending game of hide and seek in their Amsterdam store earlier this month, we can entitle them as champ in worldwide tactics and expansion. The Swedish home furnishing giant has been planting its blue and yellow flag in places you’d never expect. As proven by a marketing prank by Ikea the Netherlands, that’s gone viral last week.

Cinedans film festival opens next week at EYE

Cinedans film festival opens next week at EYE

A favourite feeling of mine is that awesome wave of awe you feel after experiencing something beautiful. Cinematic beauty and incredible physical expression in dance or theatre does that for me. Goosebumps all over! The idea of combining these two artistic mediums is pretty damn exciting and that’s exactly what is happening next week with Cinedans. (..more)

Lost in identity with Henri Verhoef

Lost in identity with Henri Verhoef

Feb 15, 2015 |  by  |  Art, Event

Is it possible to become who we want to be or even better, the best version of ourself, in the year 2015? Are there too many boundaries or are we living in a society who makes it hard to choose for your own identity. I’m a big dreamer about these kind of issues and luckily the cool photographer Henri Verhoef (24), is so as well. He shows us that fashion goes way beyond fabrics and shoes. It’s a connection to who we are. (..more)

A couple of weeks ago my news feed was bombed with sweaty, naked human bodies. The women held a golden necklace in their mouth with two words: Art Sells. To my surprise this campaign wasn’t Suit Supply, but the cultural institute of Museumnacht. (..more)

Feed your photography appetite at YellowKorner without going (too) broke

Feed your photography appetite at YellowKorner without going (too) broke

We all know the feeling of pure torture when you find yourself in your favourite store when you’re flat broke. It sucks like hell. That’s also the reason why I never go to art galleries. Even when I’m not broke I’m still not able to buy even the tiniest drawing or painting. Thank God YellowKorner finally opened its first gallery in The Netherlands. (..more)

Relive the Seventies with Toneelgroep Oostpool

Relive the Seventies with Toneelgroep Oostpool

Sep 5, 2014 |  by  |  Art, Event

Sometimes I think I was born too late. I would’ve loved to live in the hippie age; wearing flared jeans, protest with a guitar and blow ideals into the world.

Unfortunately I would never meet my historical heroes in real life, but the play They are Just Kids by Toneelgroep Oostpool can let me dream away. Writer Roeland Hofman tells me more about it.
