Art in corona times 87. After Daan van Golden; PARTS Project, The Hague

Mirthe Klück

Some time ago i visited PARTS Project to write a review about its present exhibition After Daan van Golden. Click here to read the review in VLR (in Dutch).

Mirthe Klück

It is a very full and rich show and as i’ve written quite extensively about it i just leave you here with some details and impressions of it.

Maurice van Es

However there is far more to see than these impressions suggest, so do plan a visit and take your time!

Art in corona times 79. Show curated by Robbin Heyker; Superweakness, The Hague

Anatole de Benedictis

What is a strong exhibition?

Anatole de Benedictis

Is it an exhibition in which the audience is enriched with knowledge and philosophy?

Mara Alsters

Is it an exhibition in which the audience will be completely overcome by an extraordinary aesthetic experience?

Mara Alsters

Is it an exhibition in which all works of art take their proud place in a solemn parade of greatness?

Daniele Formica

Is it an exhibition in which all works are hanging and standing orderly in line to give the audience an idea of objectivity?

Daniele Formica

Is it an exhibition in which the audience will be so terribly moved by what they have seen, that a selling point of handkerchiefs at the exit will be commercially viable?

Bram De Jonghe

Is it an exhibition in which the gloves will be off and the audience will be knocked out?

Bram De Jonghe

Is it an exhibition in which the audience will feel socially and democratically connected and will be better citizens?

Bram De Jonghe

Is it an exhibition in which the curator will lead like an autocratic Mahler-conductor?

After a lost but a zillion times copied painting by Jean-Jacques Henner (1829-1905)

Is it an exhibition which gives a view on post-colonialism, gender-inequality, the destruction of ecosystems and blackness and whiteness?

Mirthe Klück

Is it an exhibition which proves its integrity by unreadable introductions which include all words necessary to be contemporary?

Bernice Nauta

Is it an exhibition which is so exhaustively educational that the audience will feel happy like in a kindergarten?

Bram De Jonghe

At Superweakness curators are asked to make a “weak” exhibition.

Wim De Pauw

In this case it was artist Robbin Heyker’s (1976) turn.

Wim De Pauw

The original idea of the series at Superweakness was to make exhibitions without much fuss, and that will be on show for only one or two days.

Wim De Pauw

That part of the super-weakness is lost already in this show, as it lasts some two weeks.

Philip Akkerman

Besides, it is of course up to you as an audience to see if this exhibition is so weak that it will not enrich your knowledge, philosophically or otherwise,

Camila Oliveira Fairclough

that you will not be overcome by the aesthetic experience,

Robbin Heyker

that you will find no solemn greatness in the works of art,

Ton Schuttelaar

that you will have no idea of objectivity while looking around,

Daniele Formica

that you need no hanky for your emotions,

Wim De Pauw

that you will not be knocked out,

Wim De Pauw

that you feel as disconnected as always,

Wim De Pauw

in which the curator has no conductorial aura,

Wim De Pauw

that will give you no view on anything at all,

Henk Visch

in which there is nothing to read to tell you what you see, and that doesn’t try to educate you.

Henk Visch

Go and tell me later (why should i always do the dirty work telling you); it is at Willem Dreespark 312, The Hague and open on Saturday June 26 13:00-19:00 hrs; Thursday July 1 13:00-18:00 hrs and on Friday July 2 13:00-19:00 hrs.
