Bed-in for Peace
Beatle John Lennon and his wife Yoko Ono stayed in the Hilton Amsterdam hotel during their honeymoon in March 1969 and stayed in bed for 7 days in room 1902 ( now 702 ). During this so-called ‘Bed-in for Peace’ they spoke about peace with the international press. Their historical action will be set in contemporary perspective in three exhibitions, all linked with the themes illustrated Photography, Peace and the Netherlands.
Message by photo 1969 – 2009 is a choice of 40 images, made between 1969 – 2009, these images show what the Netherlands have produced on illustrated photography within the theme ‘peace’. Professional photographers will be invited to send in their most lively and visual peace messages, from where a jury of professionals, experts and affectionate people will make a final choice.
