Bovenkamer (Upper Room)

Atlas, ground floor
Price: Free (Student) Free (Others)

How often do you get the chance to enter someone else's mind to see what occupies and fascinates him on a daily basis? To discover what inspires him to create an incredible number of scenes, often painted in a matter of minutes? Come explore and feel welcome as you enter the mind of TU/e's Joep Huiskamp in this exhibition.

Countless collections, cases full of photos, notes, sketches, musings, diaries, notebooks and collages. Reflections and research on sometimes trivial matters, often from bygone eras, but sometimes very current. Intriguing too. All this results in a visual language that is overwhelming, attractive, unadorned and sometimes inscrutable.

The exhibition “Bovenkamer” (Upper Room) shows the unbridled and, at the same time, ordered inner world of a unique person from the TU/e community: Joep Huiskamp. A master networker, a bridge builder, a signboarder, a free intellectual, an outstanding chronicler, a Knight in the Order of Oranje Nassau, and above all, an engaging, modest human being.
