Mussengang: student life drawn

Exhibition University Library City Centre, Friday 17 September - Thursday 16 December 2021

Bert Cornelius was world-famous in Groningen for illustrating the Mussengang serial, which appeared on the back cover of UKrant every week from August 1984 until June 1995. This exhibition presents a selection of 40 Mussengang illustrations. We have chosen the most beautiful, most controversial, and most characteristic illustrations, but this selection represents only a fraction of Cornelius’ vast oeuvre.

The exhibition was curated by Luuk Hajema and Frank den Hollander, two of the Mussengang writers. They were helped in this process by Bert’s wife Alies Radix and their daughter Roos Cornelius, with the approval of Tom Cornelius and Doris Cornelius, Bert and Alies’ other two children.
