il sipario finale © Sven Fennema On my first visit there in 2009 I was melted and already over and over bitten by the mosquitos after a few hours, it was a ral mosquito hell and we had to run before we even saw half of this forgotten asylum. 2 years later it was time for my revisit, in spring, without mosquitos. Here you see the cinema of the old psychiatric hospital in it's natural decay of decades
