When Things Fall Apart   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Aernout Mik at Stedelijk Museum May 4th, 2013 - August 25th, 2013
Posted 7/4/13
Growing up in the Netherlands in the late eighties as the child of a liberal, creative, and slightly mad family meant that on Sunday morning, church was replaced by . Broadcast by a television network producing possibly the best and most inappropriate children’s television ever made, Rembo and his friend Rembo – two ultra camp chavs in their late twenties – looked at society through bright pink, star shaped glasses (to match their seventies glitter suits) and taught me, unwittingly, more about...

Amsterdam’s histories are revisited in the present in ways ranging from the spectacle of the Amsterdam Dungeon to more serious approaches like those of the Anne Frank Huis. Every tourist knows the way to the latter and I can understand why. The hiding place where a girl penned her gripping diary captures the imagination. Anne Frank’s story might be the most famous, but she was just one of many forced to hide during the German occupation. Another former hiding place, less well known but equal in... [more]

Museum De Paviljoens in Almere is currently showing the third exhibition in a series called (The Dutch Identity?) called De Kracht van Heden (The Power of Present). These big, significant titles generate high expectations. According to the museum, every show within the Dutch Identity project offers a specific perspective on contemporary Dutch art and the social, cultural and geographic context it comes from. Issues like migration, interculturality, new towns, and the post-colonial history of... [more]
Without beginning or end   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Aernout Mik at Jeu de Paume March 1st, 2011 - May 8th, 2011
Posted 4/24/11
Despite only eight video installations, Communitas is a huge exhibition that could take hours, maybe even days, to go through. This is primarily because there is no telling where the beginning and end of the video loop of each work might be. We can sit and watch for extended periods of time and never see the same scene twice. In fact, in only one of the installations did I recognize something I had already seen. The absence of beginning and ending, the unknown locations, the movement through... [more]

Posted 1/3/11
Pulling from the Museum of Contemporary Art’s (MCA) own collection, curator Tricia Van Eck, with the help of Dominic Molon (a former curator at the MCA, now Chief Curator at the Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis), presents this season’s bread-and-butter exhibition. Running until May, “Without You I’m Nothing” addresses an issue that has defined art from the ‘60s onward: the viewer. What is the role of the audience in art? Does art exist without an audience? How can art affect and effect the... [more]
Controlled Space   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Aernout Mik at The Project May 7th, 2009 - June 26th, 2009
Posted 5/31/09
Aernout Mik’s latest show at The Project is a continuation of this Dutch artist’s exploration of the spatio-temporal relationship between video and architecture, this time examining notions of authority and control within it.  The show includes two recent projects, (2008), a two channel projection, and Plywood Dwelling (2009), created in collaboration with Dutch filmmaker and steadfast directorial assistant to many of Mik’s videos, Marjoleine Boonstra.  In Mik’s videos, something...
