Manifesto Of Doubtby Jan Hamstra
In the summer of 2016 Jan graduated from Minerva Art Academy with his Manifesto of Doubt installation, which received the annual Minerva Art Academy Design Prize. The installation centers around a woodcut book titled 'Manifesto of Doubt'. The book consists of 18 pages about political violence, all printed in woodcuts. Every spread in the book forms a sort of diptych, where through visual rhyme and text a narrative is created. Through this narrative Jan explores the area between (what we label as) resistance heroes and terrorists. The book was presented alongside the 32 woodcuts that Jan used to print the pages, 3 animated portraits and sound.
