Once Upon a Time… Roodkapje has been working on something special! 

In a wonderful collaboration between Rotterdam-based writer Tommy Ventevogel and HCA-artist Danielle Hoogendoorn, we are excited to present Desire Paths: a contemporary fairy tale in which both Ventevogel and Hoogendoorn poured their collective love for animals, animal rights and storytelling. Written by Tommy Ventevogel on the basis of Hoogendoorn’s works, Desire Paths is supported with illustrations of Danielle Hoogendoorn. Set to enchant the reader, this fairy tale takes you deeper into our relationship with animals and the wild. 

Desire Paths is designed, printed, and handmade by Floor van Meeuwen. Included in each copy is a bookmark with a QR-code that allows you to access a tailor-made soundtrack by Puck Schot to accompany your reading!  

Desire Paths appears in a limited edition of 50, so pre-order your copy now! 

Join us on Friday the 25th for the book launch of ‘Desire Paths’ a fairy tale written by Tommy Ventevogel, based on the drawings of Danielle Hoogendoorn currently on view in our exhibition space!

During this event Tommy will give a recital of this contemporary fairy tale, we will premiere a tailor-made soundscape by Puck Schot to accompany the reading, and you can get your hands on one of the 50 handmade copies by Floor van Meeuwen.
Not to be missed!

This is the second collaborative program of Roodkapje’s Hamburger Communities of Art and Live. ‘Once Upon a Time…’ takes the wonderful world of HCA-artist Danielle Hoogendoorn as a point of departure. As Hoogendoorn creates paintings and sculptures in which animals take the lead, magical, absurd and real scenario’s intertwine. They are fairy tales in themselves, both in narrative construction and aesthetics, balancing on the boundaries of art, kitsch, and dark humour. Focussed on the fairy tale, both in its historical and contemporary appearance, Once Upon a Time… provides a range of events going deeper into human-animal relationships, (non-linear) storytelling, and laying bare structures of transformation, imagination and wonder.

The Hamburger Community programs of Roodkapje provide two yearlong development trajectories for five young, talented artists (Art), and five aspiring event programmers (Live). Throughout the year both the Hamburger Community of Art and Live collectively work towards five interdisciplinary programmes built around the work and research of the individual Hamburger Community artists.

During their stay at Roodkapje the artists and residents will receive guidance and support from professionals from their respective fields, and through an in-depth trajectory that is aimed at further developing their professional skills and positions.

SPECIAL THANKS TO Roodkapje’s Hamburger Community of Art was made possible with the kind support of Stichting Bevordering van Volkskracht, Stichting Ondernemersbelangen Rotterdam, Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds, Stichting Elise Mathilde Fonds, Fleur Groenendijk Foundation, and the Gemeente Rotterdam.
