If you like her work, good news: her work can be seen alongside that of her daughter Charlie Koolhaas at the current exhibition “Room for Thought” on show at Galerie Lucy Mackintosh, Lausanne, until 27 November 2010.

And below, two goodies: one is the trailer for the exhibition she had last year in Basel and the second is a picture of a – small – part of her object archive:
