Agenda 2023

Sounds & stories of the fathers at Misssiehuis Teteringen

Jan Van Den Dobbelsteen & Danielle Lemaire

Release date: 16 october 2022

Pieces of the music and tracks can be listened to here and in the exhibition ‘Air De Missie-Op Weg Naar Park Zuiderhout’ in Stedelijk Museum Breda coming up, sept-13 nov 2022 

In februari 2023 zal ik in de Kruisruimte nieuwe tekeningen maken op groot formaat.
Hiermee reflecteer ik op koloniale missiefilms die in de vorige eeuw werden gemaakt in Indonesië in Flores. In het bijzonder de fictiefilm over de strijd van het christelijke meisje Ria Rago en haar gearrangeerde huwelijk met een moslim (Simon Buis,1930) en de adat-roman ‘Ria Rago’ geschreven door de Tilburgse SVD priester en indoloog Piet Heerkens (SVD). Op 24 februari zijn de resultaten te zien.
Tevens wordt in dat weekend mijn niuewe boek ‘Diamonds & Daffodils’ gepresenteerd.
Welkom! Aanvang 18.00

JaDa – De Missie  Residency project
From March 1 to May 31, 2021, JaDa worked at the studio of
AIR De Missie, in nursing home Park Zuiderhout. We lived and worked among the priests and missionaries, who reside there in the last phase of their working lives. We studied the history of the institution and its residents. The former missionaries traveled the world; they worked in Congo, Ghana, the Philippines, Brazil, Papua New Guinea and the Dutch East Indies and have amazing stories. JaDa was also on a mission: the mission to propagate the arts.
A double LP ‘Zij Zoeken Zich Zelf Niet’ next to the book (see top at this page) as a result of the project is in the make.
Also, a few documentary and art movies are in the make. To be released!
Presentation: september, 2022, NEXT, Stedelijk Museum Breda. i.c.w. kunstloc Brabant en Park Zuiderhout.
