A lecture by Henk van Houtum followed by a presentation of Hans Vijgen and me about our works. Henk van Houtum is professor Geopolitics and Political Geography at the University of Nijmegen and Professor of Geopolitics of Borders at the University of Bergamo. He is also columnist in De Volkskrant.
A duo exhibition with Hans Vijgen brings together two artists who, each in their own way, visualise the world through the imagination of measurement processes. Hans Vijgen is showing his work Latitude 51. From the prime meridian at Greenwich, he follows the 51th degree of latitude around the world. I will show the starting point of the trilogy 'Because we Meet' a research about the interaction between human and nature seen from the perspective of the three stages of water.
