The living museum. Contemporary music moves the objects of Kevin Power through the Jacob de Witzaal of the Bijbels Museum in Amsterdam. A recital for 11 musicians, singers and actors. With text excerpts from the Revelation to John and other classical text-sources. A salon of tones, textures and reverberating scriptures. The recital is realized as a collaboration between violinist Jacob Plooij, visual artist Kevin Power and the performance formation Anti-Delusion Mechanism.

winterSALON/2012: 'Garment Graffiti' by Thomas Voorn @ Bijbels Museum

Thomas Voorn creates colourful environmental friendly landscape pollution. He travels around with bags full of clothes, his alphabet, to create Garment Graffiti in a typical colour range.
In several photo series the garments and letters are subtly pushed to their limits. Garments are thrown into a duckweed ditch, hung up as washing in a winter forest and layed out on rooftops, creating surreal confrontations with words for a passerby. At times the garment typography appears as leftovers of a person undressed, looking for friction between clothes, text and context. Thomas Voorn developed his unique 'textile typography' in 2006, resulting in several projects and commissions. 

For winterSALON/2012 he creates a unique Garment Graffiti at the Bijbels Museum.
