Commissioned by
Nieuw Amsterdam, 2011

Artist Jan Rothuizen walks through The Netherlands and notes down what he sees, thinks and feels. He maps the places he visits a 90 year old woman that still lives on her own, and finds out in IKEA that by the year 2050 no less than 44% of the Dutch will be living alone. He spends a night in the kitchen of a 'star' restaurant, and sees that war is still going on in the former room of killed Dutch soldier Timo Smeehuijzen. He admires a hotel room of 7 euros per hour and talks to the pilot of a trauma-heli. Jan Rothuizen draws maps of culture, in the broadest sense of the word. His new forthcoming book De Zachte Atlas van Nederland makes the portrait of a country.
