Groninger Museum | Lange Mannen Met Haast

Lange Mannen Met Haast (Tall Men in a Hurry) brings Dutch-language poetic indie pop with a touch of cabaret. With guitar, vocals and drums, their playful music and heartfelt lyrics make the audience laugh, cry and everything in between. The songs are about small parties, desires, loss, a hammock in France and crossword puzzle booklets.

Synagogue Groningen | Exhibition: 'A Dutch Lawrence of Arabia?'

Jacob Israël de Haan, a man with many faces and even more stories. The son of a Jewish cantor went on to become a journalist, poet, writer, teacher and lawyer! He was the author of Pijpelijntjes, the first Dutch autobiographical homosexual novel. Although De Haan lived to be only 42, he made a lasting impression. In 1919, he left for Palestine, where he was murdered on 30 June 1924 - exactly 100 years ago this year - for his sharp criticism of political Zionism. In this exhibition at Synagoge Groningen, you will get to know the man considered by some to be ‘a Dutch Lawrence of Arabia’. But was he?
