Robin de Puy, the well-known Dutch art photographer is currently working on a unique art project "Screening Diversity" for the Tapijnkazerne of Maastricht University.
In recent weeks, many photo shoots have taken place for this project, including with students from this university at the Bonnefanten Museum. You can read more about this last photo shoot in the Observant.
Explanation of this art project
The central part of the converted square building on the Tapijnkazerne has been given an extra floor, a basement over the entire length of the building. There are 22 screens for this long glass front that will be part of the temperature and light control of the complex.
The art and heritage committee of Maastricht University saw an excellent opportunity to enrich those views of the Tapijn with '' exciting images '' that fit with what UM wants to be: inclusive, innovative, international and with a basis in the city of Maastricht.
Robin de Puy, known for her penetrating sensitive photo portraits and film documentaries, has been asked and has accepted to portray this face of the UM as a visual story.
