Sensitive Activism - Online lecture by Dutch artist Claudy Jongstra

Monday 18th of January at 4 PM the Textile and Fashion department of the Royal Academy of Art The Hague hosts an online lecture by Dutch Artist Claudy Jongstra. This lecture is part of a Masterclass and connected to Claudy's current solo exhibition at Museum De Lakenhal in Leiden.

Claudy Jongstra is known worldwide for her monumental artworks and architectural installations, whose organic surfaces and nuanced tones reflect her masterful innovations in the ancient technique of making wool felt. Jongstra’s oeuvre, often installed in large public spaces, is included in many international museums as well as private and corporate collections.

"For a long time I have been called a ‘wool artist’ - a nice name, sweet, non-threatening. But it is also bullshit. I am an activist. I want to encourage people to take action.”
Claudy Jongstra

This Masterclass is kindly supported by the Keep An Eye Foundation.
