Hanne Hagenaars takes us right through the dark times of her youth to the light of later insights. How she transcended herself and the memories that haunted her by putting her ear to art. Not necessarily with big, well-known artists, some you will never have heard of. Art as a means to look beyond yourself and discover greater connections. Beyond yourself, and within yourself at the same time. That's how she came to the artists in this book. Intuitively, she must have known there was something to be gained from their work. This is a brave, personal and intelligent book. In what it describes and how it describes it, it is itself a work of art. (From the epilogue by Hans Aarsman)
Hanne Hagenaars is a pioneer in the world of art. She writes essays, creates exhibitions, works as curator of the Studium Generale for the KABK and taught at various academies for many years.
