in paradiso - try out nr.1 & 2 at Hubert Nijmegen - 2019

On Tuesday evening, July 23, 2019, Bart Drost gave in Hall 1 of Hubert-Nijmegen an overview of his artist's life through six works and one performance, an intensive search for the sources of homesickness and longing.

A photograph of the young artist - taken on silly children's day 1961 - is prominent in Hall 1, as if the boy were guest of honor.
