In search of…. interview with Tjark Tijdens

Tjark Tijdens lived in the same village as Bas Jan Ader when they were young. Together they attended primary school and Bas Jan Ader stayed with the Tijdens Family for some time when things weren’t going ok at home. In a later stage Tijdens visited Bas Jan Ader in America, he tells about this visit in this video interview. The interview was included in the In Search of…-exhibition at the Reformed Church in Nieuwe Beerta from 2nd of September – 28th of October 2012, together with the video interviews with mrs Kuiper-Bruins (maid at the Ader’s from 1942-1946), Harm Evert Waalkens (son of ‘farmer Waalkens’, who owned gallery Waalkens in Finsterwolde, where Ader took part in a group exhibition in the 70s) and Hans Smit (a former classmate of Bas Jan Ader). Camera + editing: Klaas Koetje. Directors: Dost/Koetje.
