During 11 May - 17 May Michelle Schulkens edited the front page.

In an uncertain time like this, the complexity, connection and dislocation of the world and its inhabitants become painfully clear. This creates a strong need for safety, security, trust and compassion. In 2002 artist Rini Hurkmans (1954, the Netherlands) made the Flag of Compassion, consisting of a flag, a manifesto and a foundation. Since then, the flag has been used both inside and outside the institutional context as a symbol of compassion. A flag for and from everyone. Text from www.amsterdamferryfestival.nl.
