An archive of representations of the island throughout the news & popular culture, art, design etc.
Title comes from the name that the Spanish gave to the islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao after they """discovered""" them - it means Useless Islands in English. It was also the title of a project I once participated in produced by Bar None in Amsterdam, which aimed to portray some of the various facets of Dutch Caribbean creativity.
