Foremost in Niek Verschoor’s work since 2002 is his research into violence and the threat of violence in society with a focus on art and artists.
His projects have been carried out at various locations in The Netherlands and abroad. He has made work in Uruzgan, Afghanistan, as sending the first Dutch artwork into space, aboard a satellite (KISS in Space). In 2023, his work (Last) Bullet will be launched to remain forever on the moon, on a lunar lander.
His mission is to generating attention for the vulnerable but crucial position of art, artists and culture in conflict situations and war zones through interventions and visual statements in the public space.
