Bertien van Manen

A house in neighborhood

Painted this pretty house near my house. I love that my neighborhood is calm and there is lots of nature and animals.


I went to Stedelijk museum last weekend without researching what's on there. It was my first time to be there since the corona crisis started. There was a few types of exhibitions and I loved the one of a Dutch photographer Bertien van Manen.

As combinations of her work, there was also the other photographs of Josef Koudellka, Jitka Hanzlova, Seiichi Huruya, and more. Especially Bertien and Seiichi, I am glad that I discovered them.

PAPADAG

PAPADAG serie
Fan art of Dutch series PAPADAG

PAPADAG is a Dutch series about the six fathers who are struggling with life and family. They met at a park, start seeing each other there every Thursday, and become good friends. The latest season just ended a little while ago.




It made me laugh a lot through its two seasons. I was also sometimes surprised from the sense of humor but maybe it's mostly because I am still learning the culture here?
You can watch it on NPO if you are interested and understand Dutch (even a bit, the program on NPO has Dutch subtitles and it helps)!
Let me know if you know any nice Dutch programs as well :)
