It’s a very small museum in the Hermitage about art made by outsiders. It’s also known as ‘Art Brut’, a name given to it in 1972 by French artist Jean Dubuffet. It simply means that it is art made by people that don’t fit in the normal life structure that humans suppose to have. Which can mean that the art is made by people who are in jail, who are ill, have a mental dissability or another way of not fitting into the community. The exhibitions are quite small, so it takes you just around an hour. And the hermitage has a nice canal view.

I am a graphic designer based in Amsterdam. My work is conceptual as well as intuitive. I try to tell stories with my works, and to get the viewer into a contemplative state of mind. I believe in a refined way of designing, in which materials and typography are important elements. I like to wander and I’m curious about almost everything.

De School is my favorite place in Amsterdam. It opened in January of 2016 on Doctor Jan van Breemenstraat in Amsterdam's west. The venue, which used to be a technical school, is more than a nightclub: it's also has a concert venue, a restaurant, a café, an exhibition space, and a gym. It has a 24-hour license and is open seven days a week. The nightclub has a capacity of 700 and is located in the school's former bicycle storage area. The club's programming focuses on local DJs, who are given the opportunity to play extended sets, but international guests also regularly stop by. In addition to the club, De School hosts concerts in a 200-capacity former workshop. Its secluded outdoor courtyard is open all year round to members of the public, not just club-goers. De School is owned and run by Post CS BV—the same crew that ran Amsterdam nightclubs Trouw and Club 11.
