The exhibition of Carsten Höller in Museum Boijmans van Beuningen was, in its entirety, based on repetitive division. That led to the title: Divided Divided. In this interview, the artist explains that this principle is not fair, but does offer more possibilities and gives life colour.
Skeletons, nudes and train stations are important motives in the oeuvre of Paul Delvaux (1897-1994). Because of the estranged representations in a realistic style, Delvaux is branded a Belgian surrealist, a label that makes him feel uncomfortable though.
The cityscapes photographed by Hans Wilschut in all parts of the world are not about urban planning and architecture, but about the people who live in the tower blocks and, in some way or another, want to turn the urban structure into something more personal.
In Ewoud van Rijn, the world lost a cartoonist. But he doesn't regret his decision to take the path of visual arts, for that path has taken him along worlds he may otherwise have never known.
Withered flowers and a teddy bear on the asphalt of the Kleinpolderplein got her thinking about research into the image language of monuments and their role in keeping alive a memory. In this interview, Anne Wenzel explains that hot air can seem overblown, heavy and pompous and that the true emotion that is in the memory can easily be suppressed by building monuments and exploiting them as tourist attractions.

In this interview by museum director Sjarel Ex, the adult Annemarie Lütjens tells the story of the painting and Max Beckmann, who was a good friend of her father.
