Between September 2011 and January 2018, Thijs Wolzak made the photographic series Human Interior for the NRC Handelsblad newspaper. This resulted in 248 interiors; House DDRdam is one of them.




The photographs focus on the residents and their interiors, and each one asks: who is this resident and to what extent is the resident also his/her interior? Wolzak looks into people’s homes, allowing us to see into their souls.

Two questions from the captions that many hundreds of thousands of readers must have pondered were: ‘How many Ikea products do you own?’ and ‘What would you save from a fire?’

The project resulted in a book and exhibition at the Design Museum Den Bosch
