Family Shield Project

On the occasion of the 350th anniversary of the Peace of Münster, a Euregional project was organized under the auspices of the Postwegen Foundation. Along the old postal route from the castle in Amt Delden (NL) to the Peace Hall in Munster (D), 350 shields of 50 Dutch and German artists were exhibited.


Below an image from the catalog 'Schilden Project 1998' of my contribution that was shown in Münster.

You play a card game and suddenly you notice that especially the ladies in the game are depicted with different attributes. A mirror, fan or bird. The project started together with Claudia Heinermann ♥️ Jenny de Groot ♠️ and Jos Eeftinck Schattenkerk ♦️  Playing cards were designed, each of us realized an installation and a 'Queen's Room' was set up; a playroom where the dignity of the four majesties was hard to find.

'Pro Memorie'  is literally and figuratively based on a lost painting by Piet Mondrian. The surface in the canvas, which was converted into a very large carpet, had the size of a grave > Piet Mondrian hated green > PM

'A Piece From Your Country'

Mailart Project / Installatie  

In 1989 I sent the invitation to participate in the project 'A Piece From Your Country' to 250 mail art artists; each letter was accompanied by a piece from my country. 

After two years, the entire project is exhibited in the old mill managed by Foundation AG de Molen.
