“For a long time I have been called a ‘wool artist’ - a nice name, sweet, non-threatening. But it is also bullshit. I am an activist. I want to encourage people to take action.” - Claudy Jongstra

At Museum De Lakenhal, Claudy Jongstra restores the connection between humankind and nature, between knowledge and material, with a solo exhibition that appeals to all the senses.
