With their project OTANI NIEUWENHUIZE, the artists look into Japanese and Dutch culture and into cultural tourism. Behaving as tourists themselves they photograph places where culture is being “consumed”. In the Netherlands they visited the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and De Efteling in Kaatsheuvel. In Japan they visited theme park Huis ten Bosch, the historic site of the former Dutch trading post Dejima, both in Nagasaki, and the shrines of Dazaifu Tenman-gū in Dazaifu on Kyushu.
