17 June to 24 September 2023


The exhibition REGENERATE is part of the annual Noorderlicht Photo festival. In collaboration with Museum Belvédère, the 2023 Noorderlicht Photo festival brings together works exploring the transformations our modern societies face. In today’s world many people feel a sense of disconnection. Regeneration means seeing oneself and the world we are living in as built around reciprocal relationships that are benefical to all. A rebalanced worldview means that humans (including their technological accomplishments) and other living beings rely on one another in the world’s ecosystems, for their health, wellbeing and existence.

By exhibiting projects that address new ways of thinking, the festival and Museum Belvédère aim to freely ask us questions about where we want to go and how to get there. Questions about the times that we are living in and a time that has yet to arrive.

Zoltin Peeter


6 October 2023 to 31 January 2024 


Born and raised in Amsterdam, artist Zoltin Peeter (1942-2019) settled permanently in Friesland in the early 1970s. The emptiness and silence of the landscape of North Friesland became his domain and base for traveling to even more northern regions in Iceland and Norway. The many sketches he made there, he elaborated in his Frisian studio into smaller and monumental drawings, in which writing and emptiness form a wonderful symbiosis.

Zoltin Peeter received the Gerrit Benner Prize for visual arts in 2010.
