Mandela Landscape & Ode to Winnie in Amsterdam Zuid-Afrika Huis

In June and July, two special works from the ZAM Art Collection are on view.

The Amsterdam Zuid-Afrika Huis is kindly hosting the works by Anton Corbyn & Berend Strik (Mandela Landscape) and patricia kaersenhout (Ode to Winnie. A Portrait of Love & Revolution). The right to sell an edition of signed and numbered prints with some of the most imaginative fighters for justice in South Africa were kindly donated to ZAM, as a gesture of appreciation for the organisation’s efforts to tell another, urgent story from Africa. Proceeds of sales benefit the productions by African creatives and changemakers.

Mandela Landscape

An inspiring double sided art print by Anton Corbijn and Berend Strik.

In 2003, Corbijn made a portrait of Nelson Mandela. Strik reworked the portrait with the unique stitching technique that brought him international fame. The resulting Mandela Landscape is a double-sided artwork; the backside showing a labyrinth of wires and stitches. Both sides were then photographed and reproduced, resulting in a double-sided art print.

Anton Corbijn is one of the world's best-known photographers and filmmakers. He has worked with the likes of U2, R.E.M., George Clooney and others.

Berend Strik is an internationally acclaimed multi-talented artist who is especially famous for his textile art.

Ode to Winnie. A Portrait of Love & Revolution

“I wasn’t aware of Winnie Madikizela Mandela’s crucial contribution to the struggle against apartheid until not long ago. Theatremaker Junior Mthombeni, who produced the successful Dear Winnie music production opened by eyes”, Kaersenhout said a public interview at this year’s Face Forward Festival, organised by ZAM. The art work, finalised in Autumn 2022, is some kind of catch, a token of great appreciation for a courageous fighter.

patricia kaersenhout is a Dutch Surinamese artist dedicating her work to often hidden and/or forgotten stories of black female fighters for equality. Kaersenhout has just finished a new, impressive monument in commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the abolishment of slavery by the Dutch, in 1873. A retrospective exhibition, Visions of Possibilities, opened in June in the Bonnefanten Museum in Maastricht.
