Vleeshal presents the exhibition A walk, a hundred years, a reconstruction by Marinus van Dijke in Vleeshal Zusterstraat.
Inspired by an article by F. Bins, published in Buiten magazine in 1911, about a walk he took straight through the dunes of Schouwen-Duiveland in 1910, Marinus van Dijke decided to take the same walk one hundred years later. "A way of looking; of rediscovering what we already have, but which somehow eludes our recognition and our appreciation. Instead of being yet another explanation of what we have lost, it is an exploration of what we may yet find". – Simon Schama, Landscape and Memory
Saturday, October 22 at 13.30 p.m a walk from the lighthouse in Burgh-Haamstede with a lecture by Kester Freriks, author of Verborgen Wilderness.
