This is the first episode of our new podcast series, Sonsbeek Memories. The memories are from Han Doornebosch, Clarien van Harten, Jan Meijering and Jan Provoost. The podcasts are part of the Open Call of the Sonsbeek Archive: an invitation to everyone to share all kinds of materials related to Sonsbeek exhibitions, including memories. By listening to the beautiful, personal memories and experiences, artworks are coming back to life in our imagination.
