Lecture Tracy Metz

Sweet & Salt: Water and the Dutch

On Tuesday April 24, bookstore Godert Walter will organise a lecture in the Noorderlicht Photogallery by journalist Tracy Metz. She will present her book Sweet & Salt: Water and the Dutch.

Sweet & Salt: Water and the Dutch is about the 'extreme makeover' of the Dutch landscape in order to accommodate a new relationship to water. The Kunsthal in Rotterdam hosts an exhibition by the same name, curated by Maartje van den Heuvel, of art works that reflect the changing relationship between the Dutch and the water that has shaped the Netherlands.

On February 12, Tracy Metz handed the first copy of her book to Dutch crown prince Willem Alexander of The Netherlands.
