HET VIJFDE SEIZOEN DIARY, 2015, 15 Pencil on paper 21x29,7 cm each.

This series draws from the rich and imaginative visual language of the diaries kept by the staff and the patients at Nieuw Dennendal, as well as the newsletters that were sent out to sympathisers of the experiment all over the Netherlands in the 1970s (these materials are present at the Nieuw Dennendal archive, International Institute for Social History in Amsterdam). The work foregrounds the visual characteristics of these important testimonies, which have received less attention in the predominantly historical studies of Nieuw Dennendal.

The project was supported by the Mondriaan Fund.
