OLD WOUNDS IN BENDER

In this photo series, Marlon Roseberry Buenck traces the region of Transnistria through the experiences of two women in the city of Bender, whose day-to-day lives have been heavily influenced by the tumultuous period of violence and conflict. The wounds of war, it seems, are yet to have healed, instead continuing to deepen the volatility and uncertainty surrounding the unrecognised state that is perched on the very edge of Europe. What does the future hold for such regions? Are they

IN SEARCH OF ERASMUS: THE WOMAN WHO INTRODUCED STUDENTS TO EUROPE

What could we still learn from the insights of a long-dead thinker? I had no idea. But after travelling to 12 cities that were also visited by humanist Desiderius Erasmus more than 500 years ago, I have found the man behind the name. In dozens of fragments, actually, spread across the Europe like a gauze of stories. In my search to uncover the legacy of the man who is often referred to as the ‘first European’, I spoke with people who,

Next to expressing their condolences to the families of the victims, people started having questions. They wondered why this tragedy had occurred, whether there had been any way of preventing these murders. More importantly though, they

SCYLLA AND GLAUCUS

The love story of Glaucus and Scylla is a twisted one. It all began on a day that seemed like any other. Glaucus, a young dapper fisherman, had just made his way back to shore after hours of heavy fishing. He was in the process of emptying his catch onto the ground, when suddenly and much to his astonishment, the fish -- some caught hours ago -- came back to life and proceeded to wiggle their way back into the

FOOD IN THE HOOD

In recent years there has been a renaissance of food sharing and the art of homemaking. In big cities, preparing homemade food every day is more challenging. Thus, many places provide and try to fake the atmosphere of a cosy simplicity, normally associated with the home.

WHEN DESPERATION TURNS INTO ART | ATHENS

Over the past seven years, the socioeconomic crisis that brought the citizens of democracy's birthplace to their knees has attracted the global media to the Greek capital. The crisis has, however, also put Athenians (back) in touch with their walls. From INO's murals – heavily inspired by the rich history of Greece – to Woozy's colourful street art, Athens has become a centre for graffiti – and even modern art, as manifested from the city's co-organisation of this year's Documenta (14th edition) exhibition.
