Anna Lange  (1969)

Exploring new horizons is a key factor in all the self-initiated projects of Anna Lange. Reality in its un-utopian and commercial appearance is her starting point for adventure, questioning and fantasy. She infiltrated into the Dutch Army during the Bosnian War; was the first and only Poetical Adviser at the Ministry of Culture in The Hague; she delivered her Masterpiece in an extensive 'topophony' in film, photography and neon while corresponding in essays with Master Anselm Kiefer; as the executor of the last will of an old peasant couple, she started the project Sideway Scenery and worked a.o. on the experimental film White Mare: the trailer will be released in 2018.
