Maak Kunst Van Het Leven (Make Art Of Life)

A newly created relief, entitled 'Maak Kunst Van Het Leven', has recently been added to the public artwork 'U Bevindt Zich Hier' ('You Are Here'), consisting of more than 20 columns alongside the Oranje Vrijstaatkade, Amsterdam.

The artwork 'U Bevindt Zich Hier' ('You Are Here') by Martijn Sandberg, honours prominent residents, groups or places highlighting the character of District Amsterdam Oost in the twentieth century.
The concrete pedestals are provided with texts appropriate to the persons, groups or places in District Oost in the twentieth century. The accompanying names and background information are deliberately not mentioned in the figuration upon the artwork. The artwork on site invites one to contemplate and literally 'un-cover' the 'Legacy of the Twentieth Century' oneself.

The website www.u-bevindt-zich-hier.nl functions as an online guide and forms part of the artwork. The website offers background information about the person, group or location to which the pedestal refers.
