Talkshow about Nature by 'De Correspondent'


Talkshow about Nature by 'De Correspondent'

On 24 March it's time for the next edition of Artfest, the art talkshow organised by 'De Correspondent'. The theme this time? NATURE! Obviously the best subject we can think of. It starts at 20.00 at the Tolhuistuin in Amsterdam. Are you joining us?

This century, the climate crisis is more urgent then ever. Artist can make us aware of that in powerful ways. Art can also be the spark for innovative solutions. Reasons enough for De Correspondent to initiate an Artfest about Nature.

What to expect?

- Erik de Jong, 'Artis-expert' and professor in landscapes, works on a masterplan for Artis and shares what it's all about. A hint? It includes a brand new museum for 'People and Nature'.

- Artist Semâ Bekirovic found out that the best colleagues you can have are animals. She collaborated with slugs, bees and our black and white friend, the Coot. Check out this video.

- The Belgian artist Koen Vanmechelen will talk about his fascinating 'Cosmopolitan Chicken Project' - an investigation on biodiversity among chickens.

- And, Ann Demeester, director of the Frans Hals Museum will give a mini lecture about nature.
