Salon Martine van Kampen
Held at the Dutch Embassy, this salon was titled “On the Future of the Past”.
Before assembling at the Dutch Embassy, we met at Hausvogteiplatz and embarked on a small tour through the city to view a handful of public art sculptures.
At the Dutch Embassy we received a fascination presentation by Vincent de Boer, special guest from the Netherlands, about his work as a curator at Stroom Den Haag. Following the presentation we discussed other public art initiatives such as the works of artist Yorgos Saspountzis, and Axel Wieder’s project “New Patrons” that collects private funds to finance public art.
Attending Guests: Loek ten Hage (Dutch Embassy), Dominique Hurth (Artist), Hans Dickel (Publisher, Kunst in der Stadt, Skulpturen, Berlin), Constanze von Marlin (Art Historian and Researcher), Dieter Roelstraete (Curator at MuHKA), Aleksander Komarov (Artist), Susanne Kriemann (Artist).
