No lesson Leo on Thursday but an assignment!
Please read this carefully.

Leo's knee has proportions of a balloon, so traveling to The Hague is not realistic. He is however able to read and comment on your work. All students sent me a pdf file with their story (pictures + text) so far and reflections, also in the same file: update themes and Joke-story for magazine. Make pictures of your relevant workbook pages and include these as well. You can use the lesson hours doing this. Deadline: Friday morning 9.00 hour. Use the email adres bellow (not the kabk one). There will be an extra photojournalism lesson soon. Details about that later.

Rijksmuseum: Maak je eigen Meesterwerk
Doe mee met de designwedstrijd van het Rijksmuseum

Ter gelegenheid van het 1-jarig bestaan van Rijksstudio is het Rijksmuseum een designwedstrijd gestart: Maak je eigen Meesterwerk. Met de wedstrijd daagt het Rijksmuseum mensen uit zelf aan de slag te gaan met de collectie. Alle kunstvormen zijn mogelijk (design, beeldende kunst, foto, video), mits geïnspireerd op de collectie van het Rijksmuseum en met beeld uit Rijksstudio. Een internationale jury van ontwerpers, creatieven en museumdirecteuren beoordeelt de ontwerpen. Het beste ontwerp wint de Rijksstudio Award en wordt in het Rijksmuseum tentoongesteld. Wint uw student de Rijksstudio Award? Een ideale gelegenheid dus voor studenten van kunstacademies om zich te profileren door mee te doen met deze ontwerpwedstrijd. Dit kan op individuele basis maar natuurlijk ook als onderdeel van het curriculum. Het deelnameformulier en meer informatie over de opdracht en de prijzen is te vinden op de Rijksstudio Award-pagina.

The ruins of crisis as a breeding ground for progress

My series deals with the oppurtunities that a destructing collapse offers for innovative and creative ideas. My intention is to show that an end is simultaneously a new beginning and always succeeded by another sequence, whereby occasionally destruction is an inevitable need for development.

Therefore I photographed the construction work of a renaturalising project along the Maas in the north of Maastricht, where the course of the river is being transformed to be more organic and natural.

The so called "Grensmaas Project" is a part of the "Natuurbeleidsplan" by the dutch government that shall provide for 190.000 hectares of new nature by 2018 in order to counteract the crisis of decreasing biodiversity and vanishing nature in the Netherlands.
