Number one

The Boston Globe

More than 300 U.S. newspapers are running editorials Thursday that promote press freedom to counter Donald Trump's attacks on the media, in a move coordinated by The Boston Globe. President Trump has often attacked some media reports as "fake news" and called journalists the "enemy of the people," and "very dangerous and sick," in a tweet earlier this month. In July, he blasted The New York Times and The Washington Post as "anti-Trump haters" who "do nothing but write bad stories even on very positive achievements - they will never change." The Globe's initiative aims to denounce "the war against the free press" and it suggested that editorial boards take a stand against Trump's words regardless of their politics. LINK

Nice design and good taste

Find this wine @ Vidin, test @ Rotterdam The Netherlands

Wild and Scenic. Breathtaking and Adventurous. The Northwest corner of Bulgaria is a true rural paradise. This small region borders the majestic Danube River to the north and Serbia to the west. Northwest Bulgaria is so far off the tourist track that only the true intrepid travellers venture into this rural area. Prehistoric caves, medieval forts, natural sandstone and rock formations, rock-sewn fortresses, terroir-driven wines, rustic food, timeless villages and the pleasures of a simple life are just a few unique experiences to be found in the wild northwest of Bulgaria. There is no better time to visit this unexplored region than the present before the crowds discover its beauty. This region is a well-kept secret even to Bulgarians, and we invite you to explore it with us on a 5-day wine and cultural tour that will leave you with everlasting memories. LINK find this wine

Jan van der Does

In the year 1976, I met Jan van der Does in my studio. He had a request to me if I wanted to paint his new home in Delft. Jan showed me a sheet of toilet paper in elephant gray. “Is it possible for you to paint my house from this color Dolf?” “Yes I said, but Jan, only with the best paint products, I will do it!” I made a gray scale with sixty different shades. A week later I went to Delft to make a calculation and show Jan the tint scheme. I went to work, and heard from Nancy his wife that Jan was a specialist in decor design. After three months the work was finished. An decor! Jan was already at work at TU Delft. Many people who know Jan talks about his work in Hilversum but you hear little about his work at TU Delft. In my current job I often have to deal with architects, many of them knows Jan. They were happy that they had lessons from Jan. Jan was a proponent of hand drawing for architects. Today the computer is a great acquisition for the upcoming architect, but Jan also believed in solid handwork. Looking at perspective in combination with the use of your hand was very important for him! Of course Jan developed himself. The last time I saw him, he was working on an Apple computer for a project. I thought and I thought it for a long time, he was cool! LINK beeldengeluid LINK delta TU Delft

Jacob August Riis

@ Foam Amsterdam

Jacob August Riis was a Danish-American social reformer, "muckraking" journalist and social documentary photographer. He is known for using his photographic and journalistic talents to help the impoverished in New York City; those impoverished New Yorkers were the subject of most of his prolific writings and photography. He endorsed the implementation of "model tenements" in New York with the help of humanitarian Lawrence Veiller. Additionally, as one of the most famous proponents of the newly practicable casual photography, he is considered one of the fathers of photography due to his very early adoption of flash in photography. While living in New York, Riis experienced poverty and became a police reporter writing about the quality of life in the slums. He attempted to alleviate the bad living conditions of poor people by exposing their living conditions to the middle and upper classes. LINK foam

Exityourstoryteller was invited to exhibit their work in Dubai. The owners of the Alserkal Cultural Foundation want to think about it to exhibit this work. We researched their Center and have seen that they are specialized in local Arts and Craft. Our work is of another level. So we continue to get our work exhibit at another gallery in Dubai. Five works are finished, the sixth work is about the animal life in Dubai (this workpiece is in progress). Here you see two pieces of work: Compass and Rain. LINK exityourstoryteller

BABA MARTA DAY (the "Martenitsa" Day) - March 1

This Martenitsas are imported by Julia from Plovdiv a few days ago to Rotterdam

March 1st is known as the "Baba Marta" Day in Bulgaria – so, on the very March 1st, as well as the days following, all people give each other red-and-white tokens in the form of strips, ornaments or a pair of small woollen dolls, traditionally called “Pizho” (the male character) and “Penda” (the female one), also known by the name Martenitsas.

Salim Bayri

Surprising during Art Rotterdam 
Photo's dolf pauw

Salim Bayri (Casablanca) is an artist graduated from the Escola Massana art school (Barcelona) and currently a Masters degree candidate in Art, Design and Technology at the Frank Mohr Instituut of Groningen (Netherlands). Being born and raised in a crossroad country like Morocco and living in Europe, his work stems from questioning the disparity between self, cultural and national identity. By taking daily life as subject matter, his work is the outcome of examining the different layers of identity labels that supposedly define his persona as a migrant. With a humorous approach, he plays with these labels twisting them and presenting them in a variety of media through performances, drawings, still and moving images. He creates situations in which everyday objects are altered or detached from their natural function. By drawing specific narrative lines, different functions and contexts are created. Salim Bayri is currently the half of BAZOGA music duo. LINK Salim Bayri

J. Howard Miller

We Can Do It! poster 
Rosie the Riveter, picture from Geraldine Doyle

Miller studied at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, graduating in 1939. He lived in Pittsburgh during the war. His work came to the attention of the Westinghouse Company (later, the Westinghouse War Production Co-Ordinating Committee), and he was hired to create a series of posters. The posters were sponsored by the company's internal War Production Co-Ordinating Committee, one of the hundreds of labor-management committees organized under the supervision of the national War Production Board. Miller may have based the "We Can Do It!" poster on a United Press International (UPI) a supposedly picture taken of Geraldine Doyle working at a factory in Michigan, but in recent year it was said to be a picture of Naomi Fraley nee Parker in 1942 in California. At the time of the poster's release the name "Rosie" was not associated with the picture; that came after 1982 when the poster was rediscovered in the US National Archives. LINK wikipedia
