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

امل حياتي ام كلثوم اغنيه الكاملة 

Umm Kulthum is a famous and very popular singer from the Arab world. Kulthum performed throughout the Middle East and once in Paris in 1967. Even 40 years after her death, her albums are still selling better than those of anyone in the Arabic language. Umm Kulthum's singing style and especially her full and deep voice are imitated by many.  LINK أم كلثوم

Dubai project

Concept Alicyn Henning and Dolf Pauw, 
design Dolf Pauw


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

Erik de Vlaam



The objects of Erik de Vlaam (1977), graphic designer graduated cum laude from the Willem de Kooning and senior designer at Studio Dumbar, form a critical view of the world. The Vlaam's works reflect the mixed feelings through forms and words that society itself produces. The beauty and at the same time the threatening of the 'progress', for example, can be found in his works. The process itself also experiences an interesting, contrasting development, on the one hand the personal way of working and on the other the technical process. The graphic background of De Vlaam is clearly visible in his objects, composition, color, typography and perspective are essential elements. He works himself from strong abstact forms, which are emphasized by bright color compositions. His objects refer to the society that is full of contrasts.

Sasya Tranggono

@ “EROPALIA”, National Art Gallery, Sofia, Bulgaria




She was seeking, seeking for a higher purpose in life as many accomplishers will contemplate once a plateau of performance has been achieved. She sought to live that proverbial cliche: the next mountain to climb, the next limit to reach, the next frontier to cross. Such is the storyline of Sasya at this stage of her career and at this stage of her purpose-driven life. This time Sasya is testing where few forerunners in the field of watercolor pointing have managed to seize: to have the full command and total cooperation of watercolor when mixed and applied on canvas. These two just do not co-exist easily. Sasya is going to change all that. Watercolor techniques have the reputation of being quite demanding, both of the artist's true skill and of the artist's true commitment to this medium. Sasya takes as the next frontier to cross.

Radio Ethiopia

Patti Smith Group

Radio Ethiopia was the follow-up record to Smith's widely acclaimed debut Horses. In interviews surrounding the album's release, Smith explained that she chose producer Jack Douglas in hopes of making the album a commercial success. The album was negatively received when it was released and Smith was attacked by critics for what they perceived to be laziness, self-indulgence and selling out. The title track of the album is one of Smith's most notorious songs, almost legendary for appearing to be "10 minutes of noise". Critics often described live renditions of the song as negative moments of Smith's concerts. Patti herself spoke highly of the track and of how the lyrics refer to Arthur Rimbaud's dying wishes. Arguments both for and against the song have been advanced by critics, fans and music listeners over whether the song truly is an example of the Patti Smith Group's boundary-pushing or merely self-indulgence. Critics in negative reviews cited that Douglas' production placed more emphasis on creating a heavy sound through numerous guitar parts which smothered Smith's vocals[2] and, at times, lamented that all of the album's songs were originals of the group (Smith co-wrote much of the album with bassist Ivan Kral, the band member keenest for commercial success. "Ain't It Strange" and "Distant Fingers", the latter co-written with Smith's long-time boyfriend Allen Lanier, had both been staples of the Group's concerts long before the recording of Horses. LINK Patti Smith Group
