Melanie Chrissy Bos’ powerful performance at last week’s unveiling of Hans van Houwelingen’s Lorentzmonument in Sonsbeek park.
About the piece
Princess Juliana did the first unveiling of the Lorentz monument at Sonsbeek Park, in 1931. Hans van Houwelingen updated the monument in 2008 during Sonsbeek 10. He engraved 142 new names of scientists who had played an important role in the spreiding and developing Lorentz’ legacy. Hans van Houwelingen added this to the monument as a symbol for international collaboration. 68 years after the first unveiling the monument has been restored and updated, so it can be unveiled for the second time.
