Fragments of a Conversation with a Counterfeiter

The project 'Fragments of a Conversation with a Counterfeiter' by Diego Tonus and Anonymous contributes to a discussion about the transformation of value. The series of new works exhibited derives from an assumed conversation between the artist Diego Tonus and a forger (Anonymous), revealing controversial thoughts related to contemporary systems that deal with the definition of value. Each artwork is a material translation of this conversation, in which the artist appropriated the forger's ideas, questioning the ‘counter' of counterfeiting. The works 'Private Conversations' and 'Timepiece' presented at Stroom Den Haag both deal with these aspects.

'Private Conversations' consists of seven positioned briefcases that are equipped with technologies that disrupt all analogue and digital audio signals. This installation becomes a platform enabling free discussions and exchange of varying expertise and legalities. The video 'Timepiece' symbolically offers a deconstruction of our system(s) of time, and thereby value. The mechanics of the first watch to travel to the moon are disassembled and hand-mounted, in order to put them back together again. It's a reminder of the way in which economic business models are created around memorable events, and so their relation to time and value are intertwined.

A project in collaboration with Jan van Eyck Academie (Maastricht) and MAMbo Museum (Bologna, Italy).
Part of Stroom's long-term program 'See You in The Hague', a multifaceted narrative about the ambitions and reality of The Hague as International City of Peace and Justice.

Visual Culture Research Center: Hybrid Peace

Vasyl Cheperanyn and Visual Culture Research Center (VCRC), Kyiv, Ukraine, present the project 'Hybrid Peace', staging installations, screenings, and discussions. 'Hybrid Peace' explores the politicality of truth through visual art and forensic knowledge. The very basic idea of a united Europe was to establish peace on the continent— where there is Europe, there is peace. In the face of technological developments in the geopolitical landscape, an ongoing 'hybrid war' is establishing itself: how can we conceptualize a ‘hybrid peace’?

Over the course of a 7-week period, the project will develop in multiple thematic directions around the concept of hybrid peace. A work-in-progress exhibition will be constructed, unfolding the concept of hybridity and its entanglements in Stroom's exhibition space.

Accompanied by an extensive public program of events. Exhibition with the participation of: Yuriy Hrytsyna, Angelina Kariakina, Oleksiy Radynski, Hito Steyerl, Artur Zmijewski. Curated by Vasyl Cherepanyn.

VCRC is the first guest within the new program 'Our House, Your Home', in which Stroom Den Haag invites international organizations to temporarily take over the exhibition space to do the things they consider to be most urgent, fitting or challenging.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
This project is made possible through the generous support of: Mondriaan Fund, The City of The Hague, Prince Claus Fund for Culture and Development.

Jubilee 25 years Marcel van Eeden

Galerie Maurits van de Laar has represented artist Marcel van Eeden for 25 years! The first exhibition of Van Eeden was a solo in March 1994 at the former location of the gallery at Westeinde 203 in The Hague.
In order to celebrate this jubilee, the gallery presents an exhibition which is in part a retrospective of works that have been sold by the gallery over the years and partly consists of new works.
The exhibition is accompanied by a small publication with memories of buyers of their first encounter with Van Eeden's work.

Artist: Helen Dowling
Helen Dowling

British artist Helen Dowling (b. 1982) uses a multitude of images that she has found, downloaded or made herself to create associative worlds that border on abstraction. Her atmospheric films play with rhythm, colour and sound, presenting an alienating view of our universe. From heavenly bodies to wandering humans, images appear in apparently random succession, creating hypnotic stories with no linear plot. The show at GEM will be Dowling’s first solo exhibition in a museum, and it will combine several video works and sculptures to create a total installation.

Artist: Luís Lázaro Matos
Notes on Cosmic Pluralism – Solo Exhibition

Amidst an inevitable degree of bewilderment at fairs brought about by seeing so many works simultaneously, one installation struck 1646's attention immediately. It was breathing pleasure, lightness, humour and it contained an intriguing combination of elements: an animation of a camel, a mural of a coastal city with a camel on it, and drawings of buildings with camel features. Bossa Nova was the title of the work and it radiated a sunniness that alleviated the intensity of the moment. We decided to look further into the work of Luís Lazáro Matos.

Similar to the experience we had as kids when the main character of an illustrated book is transported to a fantasy world, the immersive installations of Luís reproduced a comparable sensorial astonishment in 1646. They experience his installations feel as expanded paintings. Color, composition, contrast, depth and texture of the canvas are transformed into three dimensional spaces ruled by the same principles. Principles that Luís seem to master with ease, enjoyment and sensuality. 1646 further notes, when speaking to the artist, the ease and pleasure with which his avid curiosity combines facts that have always fascinated him with synchronicities of everyday life. ‘I’m completely obsessed by exoplanets at the moment,’ was the promising sentence of their last Skype call.

Space and Infinity, Ieder de helft

A duo exhibition by Inez Smit (paintings) and Otto Egberts (paintings).

The work of Otto Egberts comes from a deep source, such as conscience from which one draws its infinity. The limitations of the canvas force Egberts to visual interventions on the given physical formats.
Inez Smit builds an endless space with subtle demarcations. Thin coloured lines and fine-spun relief are a combined result of her inner explorations.

In this duo exhibition 'Space and Infinity' a special project by the artists Jan van der Pol and José den Hartog is presented in parallel on the gallery floor, titled "Ieder de helft". Together they painted a series of ceramic plates, each one on one half the plate.

Carel Visser: Genesis

Genesis is the first large retrospective of sculptor Carel Visser (1928-2015) in the Netherlands. Visser is undoubtedly one of the most important Dutch sculptors of the twentieth century. Museum Beelden aan Zee is honoured to open this exhibition to the public in the spring of 2019. His work is represented not only in the most important museum collections in the Netherlands but also abroad at the Tate and MoMA.

This retrospective provides a balanced overview of the work that Visser produced over a period of more than 60 years. While his sculptures are the focal point of the exhibition, ample attention is paid to his drawings, collages, graphics, utensils and jewelry, as they are all considered to be closely related components of his oeuvre.

Erwin Olaf

Gemeentemuseum Den Haag and The Hague Museum of Photography are to honour one of the Netherlands’ most famous photographers, Erwin Olaf (b. 1959), with a double exhibition. Olaf, whose recent portraits of the royal family drew widespread admiration, will turn sixty in 2019 – a good moment to stage a major retrospective. The Hague Museum of Photography will focus on Olaf’s love of his craft and his transition from analogue photojournalist to digital image-maker and storyteller. Olaf will himself bring together some twenty photographs by famous photographers of the past who have been a vital source of inspiration to him. Gemeentemuseum Den Haag will show non-commissioned work by Olaf from 2000 to his most recent series, including the work he produced in Shanghai and another series never before seen on public display. Olaf will be showing his photography in the form of installations, in combination with film, sound and sculpture. ‘We will be setting up the galleries in such a way that the exhibition is a journey through my head,’ says Olaf. ‘Visitors will be able to wander through my mind.’

Artists: Jean-Pierre Brisset, Marcel Duchamp and Raymond Roussel
Engineers Of The Infra-Thin

Jean-Pierre Brisset, Raymond Roussel and Marcel Duchamp belong to a family of inventors who have explored the realms of meaning, language and representation by means of linguistic and artistic procedures, technical devices and (pseudo- or para-)scientific methods.

Roussel famously created a writing method – his „procédé“ – which in its most simple form consisted of a painstaking construction of two almost identical phrases, which have entirely different meanings – an equation of facts to be solved by filling the gap of meaning between the sentences with a coherent narration. Brisset asserted the amphibious origins of human languages by developing his own system of homophonic puns, unearthing a forgotten language behind our everyday words. The work of Marcel Duchamp can be regarded as a synthesis of Brisset and Roussel with his obsessive interest in puns and minimal – „infra-thin“ – differences (between male and female, between the third and the fourth dimension, between objects of everyday life and objects of art etc.), his fascination with chess and his experimentation with optical devices.

Artist: Alighiero Boetti
Alighiero Boetti – Arazzi

Originally a member of the Arte Povera movement, Italian artist Alighiero Boetti (1940–1994) soon parted from this movement, making his own way in the arts. From the 1970s he became famous for his whimsical, colourful embroideries which he had made in Afghanistan. The works appear to express a mysterious system featuring series of numbers, letter and word play, and maps. Thanks to a large donation of these arazzi (as they are known) from the period 1979-1993 by former gallery owner and collector Tanya Rumpff, the Gemeentemuseum now has a magnificent selection of Boetti’s versatile body of work. The new acquisitions will be on display in the Projects Gallery.

Artists: Saša Tkačenko and Vladimir Miladinović
Your truth, Interpretation and Nostalgia

The theme of the exhibition of works by Saša Tkačenko (1979) and Vladimir Miladinović (1981) is truth, interpretation and nostalgia. Both artists were born in the former Yugoslavia and each have their own way of reflecting on their roots and painful recent history. Parts Project shows works by both artists from private collections from Belgrade, Serbia. A country where appreciation for contemporary art sometimes seems hard to find.

Tkačenko and Miladinović are both responding to something that is non-existent. Tkačenko binds his wounds by reaching out to the distant past and uses memories of a beautiful, pre-war Yugoslavia. Miladinović, on the other hand, dives into the harsh reality of the war and examines the impact of media manipulation.

Miladinović’s drawings emphasise the ambiguity that probably applies to every war that has been fought anywhere. No matter how hard people try to return to their normal life and look to the future, the past continues to occupy the present. The earth may be tainted but it still forms the basis for moving forward while wanting to forget as well as remember what lies behind us and secretly surrounds us at the same time.

The materials and design used by Tkačenko help convey, in an almost propagandist way, a yearning for a time that is, was and ever will be non-existent. This longing for the unattainable, the search for a time or place where you belong, creates a unique, highly individual symbolism that is focused on melancholy.

Artist: Maria van Kesteren
Maria van Kesteren – Form Variations

‘I am a woodturner, wood is my medium. I control it, it feels wonderful and smells fabulous. Unfortunately, wood also has two properties I am not fond of: colour and structure. It bothers me because it distracts from the form.’

Maria van Kesteren (b. 1933), the grande dame of woodturning, does not actually like wood. She is bothered by the appearance of the material, but she needs it to make the forms she wants to make. She is also constrained by her technique: a woodturner cannot escape the circle. For more than forty years Van Kesteren developed new variations within these functional constraints. Now 85 years old, she is no longer physically capable of making new work. The exhibition at Gemeentemuseum Den Haag will therefore be a fitting tribute to an idiosyncratic designer. It will feature works from her own collection, from private collections and from the generous gift that the museum received from the Altena Boswinkel Collection.

‘Clay is a material you have to listen to’, artist Koen Taselaar discovered during his residency at ceramics centre Europees Keramisch Werkcentrum (EKWC), where renowned artists and promising new talents can experiment with clay to their heart’s desire. The EKWC is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary this year, and Gemeentemuseum Den Haag is showing installations by seven Dutch artists whose time at the centre had a major impact on their work. Dick Verdult, Gijs Assmann, Jennifer Tee, Helen Frik, Koen Taselaar, Maartje Korstanje and Thijs Jaeger all embarked on an adventure with ceramics, based on their own autonomous artistic practice

Artist: Tehching Hsieh
Time — Life

What is time? What is art? And how do we, human beings, relate to life? These are questions that occupy all of us, and weirdly enough we hardly ever dwell upon them. Performance artist Tehching Hsieh has devoted his life to the visualization of the intangible. For him, art is formed by life itself. ‘Art is not a career, not a profession, art is my life.’

For the world-famous Marina Abramović, the artist Tehching Hsieh is an example and ‘the master’. West is very proud to be able to present his work in the Netherlands for the first time. In a few offices on the ground floor of the former American embassy, his work will be exhibited continuously for a whole year. In April, Tehching Hsieh will come to The Hague for a personal lecture and some ‘Encounters’.

A Fictional Turn: Das Leben am Haverkamp

In May, three events will coincidentally explore how publishing artists turn to fiction. For Hoogtij#57, the collective Das Leben am Haverkamp is invited to organize an event around their work at the Zeeuws Museum, where they created an entire collection of objects, based only on audio descriptions of the museum's pieces.

The collective Das Leben am Haverkamp, formed in 2014, is composed of four designers: Anouk van Klaveren (1991), Christa van der Meer (1988), Dewi Bekker (1990) and Gino Anthonisse (1988). After their studies at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, the designers all set up an individual practice, operating on the cutting edge of different art disciplines, and creating together the necessary context for their unpolished fantasies and unconventional approach to fashion. This resulted in high-profile projects such as Gefelicifashion, Quirky Cruise and Bravado - A pretentious, swaggering display or courage. For the latter, the collective received a Dutch Design award in the Fashion category in October 2017, in addition to being nominated in the Young Designer category.

Projects from the collective members have been shown during Salone del Mobile in Milan, London Fashion Showcase, Centraal Museum Utrecht, Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, Boom City in Chengdu in China, Dutch Design Week and as opening show of the Amsterdam FashionWeek.

Haagse Heritage

In the next gallery exhibition, Heden wants to give a homage to the artist from The Hague. A selection of artists which are very special and important to the art climate in The Hague takes part in this exhibition. In this way Heden presents a cross-section of the visual arts spectrum in The Hague. Artists from various generations - from emerging to proven talent - show a work that marks a special place for them in their oeuvre, that has never been shown before, or is a personal favorite of them. Based on this artist's choice, we create an interplay between the works, with a variety of disciplines: from monumental paintings to modest photography, to fleeting sketches and experimental video works.

Participating artists:
Mickey Yang , Suzie van Staaveren , Annemarie Slobbe, Juliaan Andeweg, Bob Eikelboom, Anne Geene, Robbin Heyker, Nynke Koster, Ton van Kints, Christie van der Haak, Wieteke Heldens, Andrea Freckmann, Marcel van Eeden and lots of others.

Artist: Marwan Bassiouni
Marwan Bassiouni – New Dutch Views

For New Dutch Views, Marwan Bassiouni (b 1985, Switzerland) travelled the polders, industrial estates, villages, town centres and suburbs of the Netherlands, photographing the landscape from the windows of mosques. Rugs with oriental and Islamic motifs, walls WITH colourful floral patterns, plus radiators, Venetian blinds and suspended ceilings frame the unmistakably Dutch view. Bassiouni’s sharply focused images show a society where several cultures exist alongside and with each other. New Dutch Views is a symbolic portrait of Bassiouni’s double cultural background, and it highlights the fact that a new Western Islamic identity is emerging.

Marwan Bassiouni, son of an Italian-American mother and an Egyptian father, graduated from the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague in 2018. He was awarded the prestigious W. Eugene Smith Student Grant, and has won the Ron Mando Photo Talent Award and the SBK Sprouts Young Talent Award.

Artist: Gerco de Ruijter
Gerco de Ruijter – Grid Corrections

Gerco de Ruijter began his photographic explorations by attaching his camera to a kite. The landscapes he photographed turned into astonishing abstract images that evoke associations with the paintings of Art Brut and Piet Mondrian. He found that the American landscape, which he explored in the same way, is still dominated by the Jefferson Grid, the system introduced under President Jefferson by which, from the 18th century onwards, the colonised land was divided into identical plots. Due to the curvature of the earth the geometric grid has to be adjusted every few miles. It is these ‘grid corrections’ that De Ruijter depicts, not in traditional photographic formats but as a form of intervention that follows the road network. Grid Corrections tracks the line from east to west, created a single continuous work in which form and image enter into a dialogue.

Uncertainty Seminars: Not Getting It

'Uncertainty Seminars' continues. Stroom Den Haag presents a new series of our experimental events exploring doubt as a cultural strategy, and you are invited. 'Uncertainty Seminars: Not Getting It' taps into different forms of knowing and understanding, as well as not being able to get or take something. The artists, thinkers and makers in the program share a sensitivity to strategies of (non)visibility, absence and presence - and positions that refuse these binaries and exist in between.

*As part of 'Uncertainty Seminars: Not Getting It' an exhibition by Florence Jung will be on display on Friday 24, Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 May during opening hours of Stroom Den Haag (12:00-17:00h).

The Vault

The work of the German artist duo Korpys / Löffler is surrounded by 'suspense'. In the collection of films, photographs and light images there is a continuous tension. Beautiful, grainy shots show reports of events from recent history and meticulously depict striking places. Full of symbolism and references to feature films, we recognize the images, but are not always able to bring them home precisely. For their first presentation in the Netherlands, Korpys / Löffler have found the perfect setting in the former American embassy.

Generate

'Generate' is a show dedicated to three painters of different ages: Erik Pape (1942, Roosendaal), Dieter Mammel (1965 Reutlingen, Germany) and Tobias Lengkeek (1991, Rotterdam). For the most part of his career Erik Pape's subject has been Paris, changing his focus from Canal St. Martin, basins of the Tuilleries to Notre Dame and Eiffel Tower, images in which he sought to overcome the cliche and revive as a subject. He now paints objects from everyday life observed around the Place Stalingrad. Dieter Mammel paints in a typical technique using ink on raw canvas which is made wet, so that the colour runs out and branches whimsically. His current paintings deal with the awe inspiring beauty of the polar landscape that is threatened by the effects of global warming. As in a Casper David Friedrich painting man is present as a tiny, humble figure but at the same time the cause of it's possible desctruction. Tobias Lengkeek attempts to capture time in his canvases: damaged or discarded objects were once new, by painting them he tries to catch their previous history. Other paintings show buildings or structures that are in a state of transition, being renovated or demolished.

On the occasion of the exhibition a publication is issued of Erik Pape's pantings from 2017 onwards about the everyday life scene on the Place Stalingrad, titled "Things that struck me"

Through the Looking Glass, Piece #3 AMAZED by TIME, FROZEN in TIME

‘Through the Looking Glass’ is presented simultaneously in Galerie Helder, The Grey Space in the Middle, Haagse Kunstkring, Parts Project and Trixie.
In Galerie Helder on four consecutive days Piece #3 of the programme 'Through the Looking Glass' is on show: AMAZED by TIME, FROZEN in TIME - Autism Spectrum DisOrder.
For Justin Christensen and Trumpet. With video projection.

For four days in a row, in five different galleries in The Hague, Ensemble Modelo62 will simultaneously present five pieces for solo/duo performers that combine music and performance art to raise questions on an ever-present matter in our society: mental health.

How do we deal with mental health nowadays, specifically, with the so-called mental disorders conditions? Are we prepared to welcome them and fully support people affected by one, as well as their families and friends? How do we deal with the emotions involved in a mental condition, and how can we better make contact with these emotions in order to connect better with each other and create a society that does not exclude what is not ‘in order’?

With five different pieces, Petra Strahovnik goes to the core of the matter and brings out the struggle that lies in individuals afflicted with a mental condition in five different installations: ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Anxiety Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, and Depression. With the use of music, sound, performance art, video, and electronics, she places the audience face to face with the inner world of a human being whose condition has put him in a ‘different’ lane than the rest of the world. And the question is raised: Can we go beyond rejection and find compassion in order to expand our concept as a society of what is ‘in order’?

This set of five pieces is part of DisOrders, a two-year collaboration project between Ensemble Modelo62 and Petra, supported by Fonds Podiumkunsten, Gemeente Den Haag and Dioraphte. It will culminate in 2020 with the production of the opera ‘Balerina, Balerina’ (working title), whose libretto is based on the book with the same name, written by the Slovenian Marco Sosič.

For four days in a row, in five different galleries in The Hague, Ensemble Modelo62 will simultaneously present five pieces for solo/duo performers that combine music and performance art to raise questions on an ever-present matter in our society: mental health.

How do we deal with mental health nowadays, specifically, with the so-called mental disorders conditions? Are we prepared to welcome them and fully support people affected by one, as well as their families and friends? How do we deal with the emotions involved in a mental condition, and how can we better make contact with these emotions in order to connect better with each other and create a society that does not exclude what is not ‘in order’?

With five different pieces, Petra Strahovnik goes to the core of the matter and brings out the struggle that lies in individuals afflicted with a mental condition in five different installations: ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Anxiety Disorder, Bipolar Disorder, and Depression. With the use of music, sound, performance art, video, and electronics, she places the audience face to face with the inner world of a human being whose condition has put him in a ‘different’ lane than the rest of the world. And the question is raised: Can we go beyond rejection and find compassion in order to expand our concept as a society of what is ‘in order’?

This set of five pieces is part of DisOrders, a two-year collaboration project between Ensemble Modelo62 and Petra, supported by Fonds Podiumkunsten, Gemeente Den Haag and Dioraphte. It will culminate in 2020 with the production of the opera ‘Balerina, Balerina’ (working title), whose libretto is based on the book with the same name, written by the Slovenian Marco Sosič.

Artist: Jordy van den Nieuwendijk
Image Dive, Part I: Print Workshop

In June, Page Not Found brings illustrative arts into focus, for their strong affinities with publishing, and their influence as a rich field of experimentation, which permeates graphic design and contemporary art. The first event of this focus is a print workshop led by painter and illustrator extraordinaire Jordy van den Nieuwendijk. The participants will produce together a magazine, using their own material and RISO printers. Reservation is required, contact Page Not Found for more information.

Jordy van den Nieuwendijk (b. 1985), lives and works in the Netherlands. He graduated from the Royal Academy of Arts, The Hague in 2011, where he held a funeral and memorial service for his then alter-ego ‘Superoboturbo’.

Through painting, Jordy explores fundamental objects of everyday life. Working with primary colour palettes and simplified shape structures, he has a talent for examining subject matter in series that innovate inside carefully controlled boundaries. While freeing himself from the choice between abstract or figurative image forms, he creates a field of tension reinforced by the timeless character of his work. His tendency towards this style of painting could be described as new purism. He has had solo shows in Rotterdam (Kunsthal), New York (Moiety), and most recently in London (Public Gallery).

As a commercial illustrator, he has worked on projects for countless clients such as American Express, The New York Times and Jacquemus. Always injecting elements of fun and playfulness into his editorial work, he maintains a truly unique and discernible approach.

Jordy’s work walks a charming and endearing line between the mature and naive. Often (if not always) it conveys an underlying optimism which is assuredly refreshing in our contemporary culture.

The Ongoing Conversation #6, is part six of The Ongoing Conversation, a long term collaboration between the Master Artistic Research of the Royal Academy of Art The Hague and 1646, which for the second time will take place with the first year students of the program.
For the Ongoing Conversation #6, during a period of two and a half months, the team of 1646 conducts several studio visits with each student to guide the development of new work for this collaborative project. Throughout this process of conversations, the final form for the project is developed, considering the diversity of unrelated practices together. Each year’s edition has taken a different form, from a series of solo exhibitions, to an elaborated one day event with an extensive program of performances including external locations, to a more classical group exhibition.
The artists included in this sixth edition are: Rebecca Dunne, Adele Dipasquale, Alejandra López, Alcaeus Spyrou, Biba Cole, Daniel Iglesias González, Davide Ghelli Santuliana, Elfi Seidel, Jaehun Park, Jan Tomza Osiecki, Annemarie Wadlow, Jesse Siegel.
The Master Artistic Research is a two years program constructed as a matrix of practical and theoretical research, with the artistic practice at its heart.

On Friday 14th of June the graduating students of the Textile and Fashion department present their graduating collections during EXPOSED, the annual textile exhibition and fashion show of the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague. The festivities take place in a former school building at the Helena van Doeverenplantsoen in the centre of The Hague. The Fashionshow is a one time event, times of the show: 17:00 en 20:00 h.
Tickets will be available soon via www.kabk.nl

Traces of Krijn Giezen

Krijn Giezen (1939-2011) explored the relationship between humans and nature in Fluxus-like interventions, recipes, assemblages, tapestries and objects. In 1978 he represented the Netherlands at the Venice Biennale, where he stood in a hut handing out herring he had caught and smoked himself. Perhaps his best-known work, Look Out Attention, is in the Kröller-Müller Museum’s sculpture park. Anyone who climbs this impressive 300-step staircase ends up above the trees of the surrounding Veluwe national park. With his progressive ideas about recycling and traditional skills, Giezen was a pioneer of Dutch land art and conceptual art. The exhibition will highlight the topicality of Geizen’s versatile body of work, in combination with the work of four contemporary artists: Semâ Bekirović, Chaim van Luit, Paul Geelen en Bram de Jonghe.

Artist: Jaume Plensa
Jaume Plensa

Jaume Plensa, (Barcelona, 1955) is a world-renowned sculptor best known for his constructions in the public space resembling the heads of women that are multiple meters tall. With their eyes closed, they have an almost meditative expression. Plensa's much-acclaimed exhibition at the Basilica di San Giorgio Maggiore during the Venice Biennale of 2015 perfectly encapsulated this characteristic atmosphere of reflection and repentance.

Plensa has completed over thirty major projects in cities such as Chicago, Dubai, Liverpool, London, Nice, Tokyo, Toronto, and Vancouver. Plensa has received many awards, including the Medal de Chevalier des Arts et Lettres and the Velázquez Prize for the Arts in 2013. In 2015, his work Duna was shown as part of the ARTZUID route. In 2017 he received The Ten-Year Award for his 2004 Crown Fountain in Chicago’s Millennium Park. The work, which displays videos of the faces of hundreds of Chicago's inhabitants, remains a highlight of his oeuvre. Also famous is his monumental work, Love, one of eleven fountains created for Leeuwarden - Friesland European Capital of Culture 2018. While his sculptures are frequently on display in public places and museums all over the world, they have rarely been seen in the Netherlands.

As a young artist, Plensa was discovered by art collectors Theo and Lida Scholten. They would later go on to found museum Beelden aan Zee in 1994. Plensa is excited for his Dutch debut at BAZ and to be a part of the celebration of the museum's 25th anniversary.

The catalog for this exhibition is written by art critic Anna Tilroe, curator of the Eleven Fountain project, and Jean-Louis Andral, director of the Musée Picasso in Antibes. It delves into Plensa's versatile work from the past quarter of a century.

Artist: Itamar Gilboa
Body of Work

This summer, Itamar Gilboa’s ultimate and contemporary self-portrait, Body of Work, is coming to the museum Beelden aan Zee.

For Body of Work, Gilboa was completely 'dissected.' He underwent MRI, FMRI and CT scans. He used cutting-edge technology to make exact copies of, among other things, his eyes, skull, spine, heart, liver and kidney,s and then reproduced them in shiny chrome. He also had scans made of his brain activity while he sculptured and talked about his project. As an ultimate attempt to capture creativity, Gilboa also transformed an active part of his brain into printed sculptures.

For Itamar Gilboa (Tel Aviv, 1973), the person always acts as a starting point in his work. He uses himself and his behavior as a metaphor for large, diverse themes such as migration, violence or consumption behavior, often using figures and other data obtained from research. Using various media such as sculpture, video, drawings and paintings, he translates the results into intriguing works of art. He himself is not central, however, but instead the people and networks that he thoroughly examines. He regards his work as 'social sculptures’ with a message.

His work has previously been shown in Amsterdam, Tel Aviv, Chicago, London and Beijing, and comes this summer to museum Beelden aan Zee.

Body of Work is made possible in part by the generous support of Siemens Healthineers, Stratasys, Anatomy, Scannexus, Rivas Hospitals, Radboud UMC, Tel Aviv University and AMRA.

In June, Page Not Found brings illustrative arts into focus, for their strong affinities with publishing, and their influence as a rich field of experimentation, which permeates graphic design and contemporary art. The second event of this focus is a workshop for children, aged 7-12, led by reknown illustrator Zeloot. The participants will make an animation based on a story chosen by the artist. Reservation is required, contact Page Not Found for more information.

Zeloot's practice embraces drawing and illustration. Her editorial works have been published in a wide variety of international newspapers among which The New York Times, Die Zeit and Volkskrant. The fantastical and powerful language of her illustrations envelops and engages with the content rather than merely decorates it. Zeloot’s designs and posters have reached cult status in the music world and subculture scenes.

Image Dive, Part III: Magazine Launch

In June, Page Not Found brings illustrative arts into focus, for their strong affinities with publishing, and their influence as a rich field of experimentation, which permeates graphic design and contemporary art. The third event of this focus will see the launch of the latest issue of Lagon Revue, entitled Marécage, in the presence of its art directors, Alexis Beauclair and Sammy Stein. They will also present their latest individual works.

Lagon is a prospective comic book magazine exploring new forms of graphic narration. It hosts what has been designated as a new school of abstract formalism: The magazine has been the echo chamber of a group of young illustrators, who favour sequences of drawings with a geometric and minimalist style, with little or no narrative, but for the unfolding of a process. The magazine is bilingual (French and English) and takes a new name with each new issue. To produce this issue, different printing techniques were used (risograph, offset, and silkscreen), and the resulting prints, assembled.

Alexis Beauclair (b. 1986) is a French drawing artist. His work includes drawings, comics and commissioned illustrations for such publications as The New York Times, New Yorker and Bloomberg Businessweek. He self-publishes his drawing zines and mini-comics in his risograph print studio, Papier Machine, co-founded with Bettina Henni in 2012. He has also produced comics, children’s books and illustrated books with publishers. His “Vanishing Perspective” collection of comics was published in United States by 2dcloud in 2018. His work on comics is focused on minimalism, questioning reading and the comics’ medium, while trying to refine and reveal the pure mechanics of the comic form. He is also co-editor of the international comics anthology “Lagon,” founded in 2014.

Sammy Stein is a French artist and publisher. His books, published by Editions Matière (FR), Calipso (COL) or by himself, combine narrative experiences and graphic minimalism. His publications, installations and ephemera sculptures — in which books often play a central role — have been shown in the Musée d'Art Moderne de la ville de Paris (FR), Printed Matter (USA), the French Institute of Tokyo (JP), Essential Store (JP), among others, and various international book fairs (New York Art Book Fair (USA), Tokyo Art Book Fair (JP), Safari (EN), Festival International de la Bande Dessinée d’Angoulême (FR)). He regularly collaborates with international magazines and institutions such as MACVAL (FR). He is the co-founder of magazines Collection (interviews with contemporary artists, cartoonists, graphic designer) and Lagon (contemporary and prospective comics).

The Hague Contemporary Talks

At the occasion of The Hague Contemporary Art Weekend, Page Not Found is delighted to host celebrated artist Navid Nuur, for a talk about his publishing practice.

The way in which Navid Nuur (born in 1976 in Tehran, Iran) relates to material, the space around him and his observations therein, can almost be regarded as devout. The attention for detail and the careful fine-tuning of the various elements of a work or exhibition make the audience part of an 'inner' world. In Nuur’s work — although very conceptual at first sight — a very personal visual problem becomes the central question. What Nuur has in common with the conceptual artists from the sixties is the relation between concept and form. Form for him however, is not necessarily the result of the idea, but materializes through a subjective program of requirements or rules in which intuition has the upper hand. He applies concepts that often relate to a temporary in-between state that places his work between the audience and an often abstract phenomenon, such as light, energy, air, or 'rest space'. Nuur's form-language and meaning are therefore principally purely process-oriented. His work belongs to the public collections of the Centre Pompidou (Paris), the Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam), the Bonnefantenmuseum (Maastricht) and the S.M.A.K (Gent), among others.

Screening of “Donna Haraway : Story Telling for Earthly Survival”

Page Not Found is proud to conclude The Hague Contemporary Art Weekend with the screening of this documentary by Fabrizio Terranova, giving a clever and insightful glimpse into the thought of a major contemporary figure.

Donna Haraway is a prominent scholar in the field of science and technology, a feminist, and a science-fiction enthusiast who works at building a bridge between science and fiction. She became known in the 1980s through her work on gender, identity, and technology, which broke with the prevailing trends and opened the door to a frank and cheerful trans species feminism. Haraway is a gifted storyteller who paints a rebellious and hopeful universe teeming with critters and trans species, in an era of disasters. Brussels filmmaker Fabrizio Terranova visited Donna Haraway at her home in California, living with her – almost literally, for a few weeks, and there produced a quirky film portrait. Terranova allowed Haraway to speak in her own environment, using attractive staging that emphasised the playful, cerebral sensitivity of the scientist. The result is a rare, candid, intellectual portrait of a highly original thinker.

Artist: KP Brehmer
KP Brehmer

The work of KP Brehmer (1938-1997) is not easy to categorise. His oeuvre includes paintings, prints, drawings and films that look like diagrams, statistical graphics, abstract art and also advertising posters. But the austere visual idiom of this German artist always masks a sharp sense of irony as he comments on the art world, the media landscape and society. More than twenty years after his death, his observations remain surprisingly apposite. The Gemeentemuseum is to present the first major retrospective of KP Brehmer’s work in the Netherlands, in collaboration with the Neues Museum in Nuremberg, Hamburger Kunsthalle and Arter Istanbul.
