Dutch Mountain: Landscape of Fictions, Memories and Desires
Essay
2015

"I am interested in why we are longing for an artificial mountain and how this artificial mountain relates with the Dutch and the Dutch landscape. I would like to discuss my memories of mountains as they tell us something about the desire for a mountain, the desire for (plans for) building artificial mountains or mountain like objects and the perspective you have to that artificial landscape. How does the desire to create a mountain in the Dutch polders relate to being Dutch and the history of the Dutch landscape?" — van Duppen (2015) Dutch Mountain: Landscape of Fictions, Memories and Desires, p.3
