Ferdy Karto

Artist, actor and storyteller Ferdy Karto once said in an interview that the common thread in his work is an authenticity that he can only achieve by switching off the mind that sits in the way of the authentic human expression. Karto grew up with the freedom to use his imagination, with music, stories, images and games never far away. In the fifteen years that he worked as an actor and filmmaker, he has also published a number of short stories and plays.

Last year saw the publication of Karto’s De Kroepoekmummie, a children’s book bristling with the sense of wonder and playfulness. This year Karto debuts with his poetry anthology Het Firmament Tussendoor, which was highly acclaimed by the jury of the C. Buddingh Prize.
