Opening: Twijfel Zaaien / Casting Doubts

Tuesday 5 May, 16:00 - 19:00

Are you free? Or do you break taboe’s? Come to the opening of Twijfel Zaaien (Casting Doubts) on Liberation Day (May 5th) and help with the creation of a huge flower infographic in Amsterdam’s newest hotspot: Dijkspark. Thirty questions about life and art lead you alongside the green walkway. You answer the questions by planting flower seeds. This way, your answers will grow out to be part of a luscious artwork.

Twijfel Zaaien is a new public installation by Jasmin Moeller, Masha Ru and Mediamatic. Special welcome drinks and bites for the early birds (until 17:00)! Join us here.

Twijfel Zaaien

The questions in Twijfel Zaaien (Casting Doubts) are based on earlier research by artist Jasmin Moeller and are inspired by the essay The myth of artisthood by art historian Camiel van Winkel. In this work, van Winkel distinguishes three types of artists: Romantic, Modernistic and Beaux-Art. Answering the questions does not only serve to start a conversation, but also show what kind of artist you would have been.

Freedom Meal

During the opening of Twijfel Zaaien, the inhabitants and entrepreneurs of the Dijksgracht will also host a big Streetdiner as part of the May 5th Freedom Meals. More information on the program, the participants and the meals can be found here.
