Overview participating exhibitions
The Netherlands has many ‘man-made’ hills which can be used for recreation by skiers, mountain bikers, golfers and hikers. Korrie Besems recorded them. With one exception – SnowWorld, which arose on the spoils heap of a former coal mine – these hills conceal former refuse tips, which now provide the opportunity to develop activities that would otherwise not be obvious possibilities in the flat Netherlands.
Korrie Besems (the Netherlands, 1961) studied monumental design at the St. Joost Academy for Art and Design Den Bosch. Her book Verzonnen Verleden was nominated for a Dutch Doc Award in 2010, and in 2009 was in the running at PHoto-España in Madrid in the best photo book category. Besems’ work is to be found in the collections of several museums.
