ArtisBook is organising the WKB18 in collaboration with twenty-five galleries, museums and other institutions in the city of Groningen: exhibitions, lectures, performances, workshops and conversations about artists’ books from the sixties up until 2018.

In the CBK (Centre for Visual Arts) in Groningen several books and works of twenty artists will be exhibited under the title ‘Het Boek der Natuur’ (The Book of Nature). All books and works that will be on show explore a relationship between man and nature and are not the carriers of art but the artworks themselves. More information: article Kunstkrant

‘A tale of two tails: asymmetry in Great Grey Shrike (Lanius excubitor)’ is published in “Avian Research“.  Article online here or PDF here


In winter 2016-2017 I started a pilot project in collaboration with Behavioural Biologist Prof. dr. A.G.G. Ton Groothuis. We want to investigate if certain Great Grey Shrikes (Lanius excubitor) have there own personality and preference for the way they fix their prey and how these activities are lateralized (asymmetrical in terms of preference for leg and eye).

The aim of the project is to see (1) to what extent this behavior is lateralized on an individual level, (2) on population level (3) and how it is linked to personality properties. Next winter (2017-2018) we will officially start the project.
