De Geborgen Kamers van Transvaal – 2007

An art book, an artists’ book, with a subtle reference to the district that would soon no longer exist. We wanted to leave behind proof of the energy that art has given to the otherwise empty buildings and streets.

All participants were artists working in The Hague. They had been involved with the activities which found place in Transvaal in the period 2006-2007 through exhibiting work, organizing  workshops, or other artistic activities that became incorporated in the part of Transvaal that was about to be demolished; Johannesburgstraat, Brandtstraat, Kempstraat, Vaalrivierstraat and DeLaReyweg.

Artists/writers: Alet Kortenoeven, Susan de Kruiff, Myung Feyen, K_Van, Helmi Heerkens, Thorsten Nass, Sofia Kapnissi, Nishiko.
