Behind the scenes with Noel Loozen


Shut inside, with no light of day, artist Noël Loozen sat in one of Volkshotel’s work cabins for 24 long hours to listen to all complaints. Volkshotel is a place for everyone, where there’s life 24 hours a day. We’ve asked artists to give their own interpretation of the 24hrs theme. Noël was inspired by the Dutch (‘Volks’) love for complaining and decided to collect them all.
