KABK @ Unseen Pitch
12 students selected

Thank you to all who submitted their work for the KABK @ Unseen pitch. You all have done a great job. The quality of your presentation led to an overall amazement by the committee that you are 'only' second-year students. Consider it as a big compliment to all of you. As mentioned before, selecting works is always complicated and not purely based on the body of work, but also diversity in topics, visual strategies and so much more. The following 12 students are selected to take part in the KABK Unseen installation: Nael, Elodie, Viktor, Katarina, Sophie Schwartz, Caspar, Filippo, Tibor, Alex, Daniela, Stella and Linnea (first meeting next Tuesday at 3 pm at Kummer & Herrman in Utrecht). A message in case you are not selected this time: It's ok to be disappointed, don't get bitter. New opportunities will emerge and next time everything can be different. We hope that all of you will participate in the creation of a great and vibrant activity program during Unseen. That does not only allow you to promote (your work within) Noun publication, but also grants IST points as well as a FREE passe partout for the festival. If you want to join the events and campaign team, please sign up ASAP at Linda van der Poel.

Loze ruimten
Eva Boeter

In deze serie richt ik me op de loze ruimte tijdens het werk. Ik fotografeer werknemers die tijdens hun werk andere dingen doen dan hun oorspronkelijke werkzaamheden. De economische crisis zorgt bij verschillende beroepsgroepen voor minder klandizie en zo zijn werknemers voor een groot gedeelte van de tijd bezig met wachten. Ik ben op zoek gegaan naar deze improductieve tijd.
