On Saturday and Sunday: drawing (free) and making buttons (€0,50) for children.

On Sunday: t-shirt workshop. For € 13,50 you get a t-shirt, can join the workshop and can see the entire exhibition. If you bring your own t-shirt you join for just € 7,50.

If you haven’t seen the exhibition yet, here is your chance to change that. Tickets are only 5 euros. The Parool called it “art without a pedestal“, and NRC gave it four stars. We look forward to seeing you at the Westergasfabriek this weekend.

Introducing an intern: Siri Driessen

Siri Driessen studied Cultural Analysis and History at the University of Amsterdam, and Fine Arts at ArtEZ Arnhem. She focused on photography, nineteenth-century cultural history, and new media. She presented essays about mapping, new media and network culture at the New School University and the Medialab Prado in Madrid. Furthermore, she worked for the Prince Claus Fund, where she edited a three-monthly publication that aimed to connect the archive of the fund to the present.

Siri was interviewed by Adéla who received a very similar set of questions a year ago when she started her Non-fiction career. Using the same questions for every new intern can provide an interesting pallet of opinions on Non-fiction and our practices and help us  to understand what we really do.
