The Daily Spectacle by Yuri Veerman

The Common Affairs and De Groene Amsterdammer introduces a brand-new collaborative column.

Beeldspraak is an initiative in which The Common Affairs introduces the artistic column. Where usually a columnist reacts in prose on current events, in Beeldspraak this is done through visuals. Via this pilot, we aim to challenge the creative possibilities of the journalistic narration, through refreshing and engaging imagery. The Common Affairs selected artists and designers to respond to current events through a weekly visual column at De Groene Amsterdammer.

The Common Affairs acts as a producer and creative director between De Groene Amsterdammer and a network of talented experts. Makers who in their daily practice, not only limit themselves to the visualization of content but have strong experience in dealing complex journalistic issues for a wide audience.

The Daily Spectacle van Yuri Veerman bestaat uit vijf portretten van vijf hedendaagse nieuwsplatforms die in hun berichtgeving veelvuldig gebruik maken van spektakel. Elk portret bestaat uit twee verschillende koppen, afkomstig van de website van de betreffende platforms. De column van Yuri Veerman is hier te vinden.
