Amsterdam Light Festival brightens up the winter

Filed under: Art,Event by Orangemaster @ 12:57 pm


In its third year, the Amsterdam Light Festival runs until 18 January 2015 and makes any winter night on the town that much more fun. Whether you’re a tourist or a local, a boat ride will give you a great view of some of the installations. I went on a running and walking tour where installations could be found in gardens (bike wheel dome shown here) and streets.

At 0:37 in the video, you’ll see coloured tulips coming out of a canal, the Herengracht, which have to be pumped up by passers-by using bicycle pumps. Other installations had their colours controlled by sound, motion and even Wi-Fi, making it interactive.

Huskies in the polder

Filed under: Event by Branko Collin @ 12:42 pm

My youngest brother’s latest documentary is being broadcast by National Geographic Netherlands tonight. Last year he followed huskie drivers (mushers) Roderick Glastra and Sandra Makkreel around when they were training their sled dogs, and this year was present at the World Championships 2009 in Austrua, where Glastra won the sprint title in the 8-dog category.

The documentary will be repeated on April 5 and April 19.

Kids buy art

Filed under: Event by Branko Collin @ 2:27 pm

New Zealand gallery Muka came up with the idea of Youth Prints, selling art by “internationally renowned artists” to children for low prices. Grown-ups are not allowed in the exhibition room, and no artwork carries a name tag, so that children decide their purchases purely on what they like. Apart from New Zealand, Youth Prints exhibitions are held in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands. From May 27 to June 7 a Youth Prints exhibition will be held at Museum Bommel van Dam in Venlo under the name Verboden voor boven de 18.
