AVRO Kunstuur – Vrij Geestig

The publishing of the artwork ‘Vrij Geestig’ by Hartmut Wilkening for Woonzorgcentrum De Burcht in Hoogezand was celebrated on June 24th 2010. ‘Vrij Geestig’ is a very large concrete portrait of French philosopher Michel Foucault, who looks into the new vide with a big smile. His left arm stands out from the floor, his hand resting on his bold head. This artwork refers to all knowledge of the inhabitants of the center, although their knowledge is less accessible for them nowadays due to mental illness or old age. This item is produced for an episode of Ziezorg, a program series of AVRO’s Kunstuur.
