Hoogtij #5724 May 2019 19:00 / Hoogtij@Nest
A cultural route along artists’ initiatives, galleries and art institutions. Hoogtij takes place four times a year on Friday evenings in the city centre of The Hague. The locations can be visited from 19.00 – 23.00 hours.
During Hoogtij#57 the solo exhibition of Tanja Ritterbex opens in Nest.
How to live in times when self-appointed gurus, online influencers and sly commercials teach you happiness? When the most ordered book-genre online is on self-help? Could art offer any consolation?
In sixty video works Tanja Ritterbex investigates the role of the opinionated influencer. Ritterbex takes her own life as a starting point, set in Curaçao where she is currently residing, at The Instituto Bueno Bista. ‘Free the Eyeball’ offers an insight into the seemingly random world in which self-tanning tutorials alternate with a serious attempt to find online affection.
This program is part of Free the Eyeball
