During the build-up of Showroom MAMA's exhibi-tions its windows are used for the Raamproject (Window Projects). Under the guidance of one or two of MAMA's Rookies (our trainee curators/interns), art academy students and other aspiring creatives are given the chance to make a display for Showroom MAMA's windows.
Students of Illustration at Rotterdam's Willem de Kooning Academy will work on Raamproject V and develop a display that creates a bridge between the previous exhibition The Adventures of The Great Abnerio and the upcoming exhibition Sweatboxing, which opens on 2 April 2011. Sweatboxing is a group exhibition providing an overview of contemporary drawing and is inspired by the Disney Studios' Sweatbox. The exhibition presents images that depict reality and storytelling using obsessive drawing styles.

Using this bridging approach, the artists connect the world tour with the comic book. They have created a globe trotting cartoon character called 'Keesje' and focus on the protagonist's experiences of four different locations. The trip is without purpose or chronology, but is linked by texts and shapes in a network of imagery portrayed across the showroom's windows.

The project has been coorganized by MAMA's Education and Talent Development intern Susan Callaars (1988, Utrecht), who is also studying for her master's in Modern Art at Utrecht University. In addition to being a participating artist, Charlotte Tasma is also a MAMA Rookie and coorganizer of the project.
