For Whom?

Do you want a fresh view on a project that you are working on within the field of human ecology? Are you stuck in an artistic research project and in need of some advice to keep you going? Or would you simply like to know more about the mycelium pigeon tower project that Arne is directing? Then schedule in a meeting with the artist that is always open to discuss radical new ideas and practices that re-define our relationship with the planet. 

During the meet up, you take a 30-minute walk with Arne while discussing your work, ideas, and challenges. You can expect an honest talk filled with (unwanted) advice and original ideas.

About the artist

Arne Hendriks is an artist and researcher on human ecology. He explores the borders of specific cultural values that define our relationship with the planet. His projects include The Incredible Shrinking Man that researches if it is possible to downsize the human species to better fit the earth and Fatberg, the building of an island of fat. As a regular Mediamatic collaborator, he directed several projects to draw attention to our (sometimes twisted) relation with the planet and its resources, like Kool Abundance, The Starvation Experiment, and the building of a holy pigeon tower out of recycled newspapers.
