    Episode 7: Het prentenkabinet

    First aired: Wednesday, 5 November 2014 at 18.00 hours

    The documentary The Print Room of Koos van Weringh sketch a portrait of Professor Emeritus, criminologist, correspondent and collector Koos van Weringh.

    For centuries appear political cartoons. It has been claimed that the cartoon in the seventeenth-century Netherlands was born. With the political picture of the (northern) artists contribute to the public: they put in an image abuses denounced. Cartoons are not to imagine: they belong to the daily newspaper as toppings on bread.

    The former Groninger Koos van Weringh (80) is well aware of the power of the cartoon. The emeritus professor collects them as since the fifties of the last century. With an open mind, without preferences, and always aware that the cartoon can prosper by the grace of freedom of speech only.

    Directors Jasper Huizinga and Lotte Veltman portray a passionate collector in the documentary, the Print Room of Koos van Weringh.
