Joris Lindhout

Joris Lindhout is a visual artist involved in an unruly/unrestrained practice and with an insatiable craving for weird tales of terror. Starting from his interest in critical theory and obscure cultural phenomena he creates series of zines, organizes reading- and discussion groups, and makes murals.

At the moment Lindhout is working on the foundations of the 'Departement voor Misdaad, Mythe en Monstruositeit'.
