200 Plus Artworks at Bradwolf Projects Amsterdam

Reflection in Time 200 plus Artworks

Reflection in Time is an art project initiated by Nannet van der Kleijn. Ms van der Kleijn sent about 500 pieces of blank linen canvasses in A4 size to friends, family and acquaintances. She asked if they wanted to do ‘something’ with that piece of cloth. (The previous sentence is us, at Mimi Berlin, putting the more elaborate vision of Nannet van der Kleijn in a tiny nutshell ofcourse!)

Urban History of Amsterdam

The archaeological finds of the North / Southline in Amsterdam

During the excavation of soil for the North/South Metro line an archaeological research-team was created, they found a massive collection of 665,412 man-made objects. From 18 century nails and jewelry to spoons from the 1980s. Some of these objects are on display at Station Rokin, the complete collection can be found online at belowtheservice.amsterdam

In 2004 the digging started for a new metro line in Amsterdam, the North/Southline, it was finished in july 2018. It ‘s a short line of only 9,7 km long, but it runs under water from Central Station to the Nortern part of the city. That’s why it’s quite functional, because without a car you could only reach Amsterdam Noord by ferry-boat or bus.

Anyways you vcan view the complete collection online and play with it. Like we did above. That’s all for today! Have a nice one! xoxo Mimi
