Cinema Olanda Film (2017), a work specifically developed for Wendelien van Oldenborgh's solo presentation at the 57th Venice Biennial in 2017, tentatively introduces the lives of two historically significant figures, Lotte Stam-Beese (1903-1988) and Hermina Huiswoud (1905-1998), architect and revolutionary. A further interest of van Oldenborgh in both women is currently developing through long-term research and a series of presentations, including the show Future Footnotes at Significant Other in Vienna. Visionary practices will be addressed in the conversation with Sepake Angiama.
