One history, two stories

In the autumn of 2015, the preparations for the project PAUPER PORTRAITS started by Wouter Jansen. KiK has allied itself with the Society of Humanitarianism (Maatschappij van Weldadigheid) and the associated developments in the former colonies Frederiksoord and Veenhuizen.

The Colonies of Charity have been nominated for inclusion in 2018 on UNESCO's World Heritage List. The Society wants to enter into a long-term collaboration with Foundation KiK imagining and thus more liveable making the pauper history of Drenthe Colonies of Benevolence. KiK Foundation will organize art projects that illustrate the relationship with today's society, questioning our crumbling welfare state and provide innovative impulses. Therefore, the objectives of both organizations can be combined extremely well.
