Jan Rothuizen

Dutch visual artist who describes his way of working as a form of echolocation.

Jan Rothuizen (b. 1968, Amsterdam) realized at an early age he would be a better artist wandering the streets of cities than working within the confines of a studio. Since then he has exhibited internationally and published several books. His way of working is described as a form of echolocation – his presence has an impact on his environment, but the surroundings change him as well.

Jan Rothuizen published in 2009 The Soft Atlas of Amsterdam, a collection of hand-drawn maps of the city he grew up in. Since 2009 he makes monthly reportage drawings for the Dutch newspaper De Volkskrant.

At IDFA DocLab Rothuizen presents The Soft Atlas of The Netherlands, a new collection of drawings.
