Public Presentation: 30/04/2010 Queen's Day - you can see signs of demonstration around the centre of Eindhoven. At the Stratumseind entrance of the Van Abbemuseum there will remain an interactive sound installation until 13 May, 2010. See blog for details.
This project started with a week-long workshop aiming to investigate the aesthetic and physical form of the demonstration as a means of protest and asks: why the demonstration is still adopted by groups across the world? Is this very physical, spatially specific form still relevant in the context of the much more expanded possibility of online community action? And what does it mean when contemporary art and design adopts the aesthetics of demonstration?
Participants: Merel Brands, Clare Butcher (Your-space curator), Martin Groen, Sarie Hermens, Jordy Koevoets, Erik Krikortz (initiator), Loes van der Kruk, Erik van Liere, Martijn Sanders, Suzanne Timmer, Mirthe Wacki, Angela de Weijer.
