Wearing Vincent’s Shoes

BURNING WEED

The local experience of Vincent van Gogh in Drenthe, 1883

Became a global problem in 2020

Encountering a farmer, burning weed after clearing land

Vincent was fascinated by the Orange Colouring of the Dark World

of Burning Weed, because that’s what farmers still do

How much longer are we wearing Vincents shoes?
