A few years ago, German artist Rita Fürstenau came across some old laws that are no longer in use, and she was surprised by how strange and suppressing these laws were. She started to collect them and brought them together in a leporello booklet called Old Songs, New Songs, which she recently released.
In “Old Songs – New Songs,” I combined the law texts with scenes of people or groups of people violating them. Every scene stands on its own and is connected to the others at the same time, as the statement in one scene always relates to the actions in of one of the other scenes.

There’s no place like home. Really, it’s so important to spend some time in your own little domain every now and then, to recharge and just be your wonderful self. So today I’ve gathered together my favorite homely interiors by my favorite artists who clearly love their homes too. Enjoy!
I thought it would be nice to have a little distraction from the grey winter that surrounds the Dutch landscapes these months. So I’ve gathered together some color-bursting creations by some of my favorite artists. Now, I will look at these for half an hour and dream about spring. I strongly recommend you to do the same 🙂 Happy weekend!
