About —

There is beauty to be found in embracing the multiplicity of stories that constitute our identities. The essence of home is portable and fluid—always growing and adapting, fusing and mingling with different times, places and people, expressing itself in new forms and stories.

Book launch: Kunsthal Gent x LUCA School of Arts

On Tuesday the 6th of February 2024, I presented The Girl Who Crossed the River with a Tablecloth at Kunsthal in Gent. I engaged in a conversation with writer Maurits de Bruijn about themes from the book. The evening was introduced by Dr. Isolde Vanhee, lecturer at LUCA School of Arts.

“The book offers a dynamic sensorial space where questions of belonging are transformed into new healing narratives that celebrate our personal and historical multiplicities.” 
- Anja Veirman

The event was supported by LUCA Break-out.
