On the occasion of the presentation of the book "Child and Mediation" (Cees van Leuven &, Annelies Hendriks) on 28 of November 2003, the related art exhibition " Nood Ver Band" (Bandage for Family Bonds) is opened in the museum "Het Kruysenhuis" (Oirschot, NL). The collection will be on show until 18 of January 2004. The majority of the artworks are by Joep Zander. Other artists represented are Marion Geerlings, Marielle Manche, Chris van Schriek en Lucebert.
A highlight of the exhibition is the original Pappa-painting of the petition post card that played a significant role in the 1998 parliamentary discussions resulting in the new Dutch family law introducing joint child custody. All artwork at the exhibition shows a strong expressionistic character and represents both a question mark and an exclamation mark. How are parents empowered to care for children? The painting "Uitzicht/Inzicht" (Outlook/Insight) is the optimistic counterpoint in this exhibition, the exclamation mark. The cover of the presented book is illustrated with the Outlook/Insight painting.
