kunstmarkt Veerplein Zwijndrecht 1967
during the period of Gallery den Arend
Organizing an art-mart seemed for me a way to realize two goals: one was to give artists the opportunity to manifest their work in this simple down to earth way; the other was to have something happen in one of the most beautiful and regrettably most dreary locations in Holland. The city council had for years already lost its sense of history and direction. The old center was to be demolished because of more or less Ceausescuesque motivations - slash and burn. Art to the rescue was my naive antidote.
