Art collective to watch: de Geuzen, whose three core members are Dutch women Riek Sijbring, Femke Snelting and Renee Turner. de Geuzen's projects consider paradigms of open source (e.g. permeability, decentralization, emphasis on sharing knowledge and experience), and how these overlap with or diverge from historical and current female activities, tropes, wardrobes, and habits. Check out Geuzen DIY manuals (I love their guide to making t-shirts), and stand-alone site Unravelling-Histories.org, about Dutch colonial narratives, clothing, and inspired by fellow visionary Dutch woman, Mrs. Terwen-de Loos.
