During the first half of the nineteen sixties, photographer Igno Cuypers lived for a while right behind Willem de Ridder’s gallery on Amstel 47. Here he ran into several ‘avant garde’ artists like for example Stanley Brouwn.

Brouwn asked him ‘sometime in 1964’ to document several street performances. He had been on the road with the artist during ‘two or three days’. Cuypers stated that Brouwn intended to make a work with ‘a movement from A to B’, but the first day the artist didn’t really know how such an action should be documented. At a certain moment, Brouwn asked a passer-by for a map with directions. Then, as stated by Cuypers, ‘things really got going’.
