Maarten Baas

Carnist? Put yourself in the list! (Dutch version)

Meat is still the norm at almost every buffet, dinner or party.
And vegetable dishes are the exception.
While it is known that it should be exactly the other way around.
For your health, the climate, nature and animal welfare.
What if all meals were prepared so that they are suitable for everyone?
And if you still want meat or fish, just let us know in advance.
Just as vegetarians and vegans now have to pass on their menu wishes to get something other than a meat dish.
Carnist? Put yourself in the list!

Walter, a dialogue with the imagination

In this animation you will meet the puppet Walter. Walter is being confronted with reality. An understanding that has a completely different meaning for puppets than for humans. Humans judge things based on their experiences. Walter sees this as short minded, there is more than our senses tell us. But how safe is it for humans if fiction becomes reality? In this story Walter discovers his own reality. He realizes that he has been created and animated by humans. Walter is starting to doubt his whole existence. But he is told that his existence is about a cooperation between man and puppet and that they need each other to meet in the imaginary world.
Walter has to accept that he’s being animated by a higher power. But this higher power has to make sure that Walter leads a happy and pleasant life.

Working my way up...

“It seems to me it doesn’t really matter whether one works hard or stumbles one’s way through life. Somehow, the result of any lifestyle is equal to any other.
While one falls down, another works hard to get higher, but there are always these forces that keep everybody more or less at the same level.”
- Maarten Baas -

The Uncanny String at Van Eyck in Maastricht

JUN'18 The artists taking part in The Uncanny String use dolls in their work to address social, political and cultural themes. As simulants of humankind, they have an expressive quality that has traditionally served to confront us with the reality that we have constructed for ourselves. The doll holds up a mirror to us, interrogates the dominant powers and comments on current affairs.

This exhibition explores the many aspects of dolls and their potentials. They appear in different guises ranging from the lifelike to the grotesque. They may be painted or sculptural, may figure in stop-motion animations or virtual reality. Uncanny, yet familiar.

JUNE '10 Graduated Cum-laude at the Design Academy Eindhoven.
With the animation Walter, a dialogue with the imagination and the Motion cabinet.


Niels Hoebers,
Born in 1981,  Horst, the Netherlands.
Studied at the Design Academy Eindhoven, Where he Graduated in 2010 Cum laude with the stop motion animation Walter, a dialogue with the imagination.
Directly after graduation he started his Stop motion animation Studio based in Eindhoven where he  produces Stop Motion animated production from concept to final edit.
Niels Hoebers' work characterizes it's selves by the wide variety of different materials he uses in his animations. The love and knowledge for these materials and their unique qualities ensure that the animations feel magical real. The creativity on with which he approach each and every project creates an unique alienation between reality and fiction.
The animations are executed in high-resolution and is therefore important that every detail, as in texture, form, light and composition deserves it's focus. 
Hoebers background as a designer plays a major role in this. 

Since 2018 he started to develop Slow Stories.
Slow Stories, subtle stop motion animated scenes that explores the boundaries within Film, Art and Time.
Video's without a beginning or an end, edited in an infinite loop.
Slowstory aims to create a more intimate relation with it's observer, letting them drift and imagine for a short period of time...
They are available in limited editions.
