Jan Rothuizen with 'Code inconnu' 2010

Visual artist and ‘unusual cartographer’ Jan Rothuizen leisurely strolled through the museum the past few months, looking at all sorts of objects, searching in the depot and leafing through the photo archive. He selected four special objects and formulated poetic phrases about the function of the museum (‘A free translation of yesterday’). He used his personal perceptions to make six monumental silkscreen prints, now on sale in the museum shop.

During Work in Progress De Lakenhal invites contemporary artists to make a presentation based on museum artefacts, the building, or the history of the museum.

The silkscreen prints were printed in an edition of 10 and are for sale in the museum shop for €350,- a piece.
