Finish Flag - Jarr waving the 'finish flag' he brought for the resistance archive Jesse Verdonk

Jarr Geelings from Nuit Blanche dropped by with a HUGE flag. To be exact: a finish flag which was being used to end Nuit Blanche's night festival. From 7 pm till 7 am you could immerse yourself in cultural events all over town (check out a nicely illustrated report and video here).

The black and white rectangles of the flag contain words about issues of both small and large degrees of importance; malaria, floodings, dog shit. Issues we'd rather see finished (hence the 'finish' flag) and ones that we definitely should try to free ourselves from.
