The Waitingroom

De wachtkamer

‘De Wachtkamer’ (Dutch for: the waiting room) is a series of drawings about the

current (Dutch) policy around asylum. Traumatised refugees are sheltered in the

most bizarre places, old hospitals, jails, barracks and in Germany even old SS buildings.

These two factors, combined with fact that a big part of refugees suffer

from boredom and aimlessness, form a base for this series. ‘Does this tells us

something about them or about us?’
