Wessel Huisman

BIOGRAPHY

Whilst going to the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Arnhem in 1979, Wessel Huisman studied history at the Radboud University in Nijmegen. In 1981 he graduated with honours in social and economic history. Furthermore he specialised in philosophy, philology and empiric sociology. Although he has never worked as a scientist his artistic oeuvre reveals an intriguing and unique interest in the past. Thinking in terms of time episodes and historical development - a kind of 'mind travelling in time'- he has decisively determined his orientation not only on the past but also with the present. His artistic activities brought him to the realisation that his scientific interest and the fascination for his own past spring from the same source.
