On Saturday the 24th and the 1st of December you were able to visit
the Beatrixpark in Amsterdam to see the 'Malieveldinitiatief' organised by
chmkoome's blog. Every saturday between 11 and 12 am the Malieveld in
The Hague will be used to show art indepentdently of the 'classical context of art'
and to try to capture or even conquer the artwork again.
At the Kunstvlaai 2012 this happening was moved from The Hague to
the Beatrixpark in Amsterdam. I've participated by standing next to every
performance, action or artwork with my neonpink whatever-word
For me this was an opportunity to be a 'silent witness' of how todays society
reflects on art and/or how people in general reduce effort made by others
into something 'uninportant' by using the word 'whatever'.
(in this case people who want to tell and share something through art).
This word is often used heedlessly, but it is nevertheless very destructive in
every sense. As an object (of art) it questions it's own position
and that of its surroundings.
