'In Almere is alles nieuw; daar is geen replica uit de Gouden Eeuw te vinden. Het heeft zijn korte geschiedenis, die meer is dan charme, en wie er goed kijkt zal het geen moeite kosten te zien dat de nieuwe stad en het nieuwe land ook mooi zijn, weergaloos.'

'Everything in Almere is new; there are no replica's from the Golden Age to be found here. It has a short history which is more than charm , and for those who observe carefully it will not be difficult to see that the new town and new land have an unparalleled beauty of their own.'

Yesterday I was in the south of Holland to see the collection of FRAC Nord-pas de Calais in The Timmerfabriek in the Dutch city of Maastricht.

Hundred of artworks from these collection have temporarily moved to Maastricht.

The Timmerfabriek (The Joinery works) is part of the historical site of the famous Sphinx ceramics factory. It was built in 1905 and has beautiful industrial halls.

Vito Acconci, Adjustable Wall Bra, 1990
Andy Warhol, Electric Chairs, 1971
Hans Haacke, Blue Sail, 1965

Superflex, 2007
