Saturday - Ik Hou van Holland

Ik hou van Holland (I love Holland) is not just an awful TV show on which Dutch celebs confront each other on their general knowledge about their own country (lower than mine, it seems), it's also an interesting project being developed by the Stedelijk Museum Schiedam.

The aim is to explore the relations between Dutch art after 1945 and the social, political and cultural contexts in which artists have been creating.

 This series of talks, workshops, short exhibitions and of course loads of art pieces on display will last till 2015.

Today there's also the culmination of the celebrations for the 100 years of the Peace Palace, with a big concert and some international guests. The ticket costs some hefty 50 euros, but according to some it's worth it, chiefly because Jude Law will be among the presenters.
