The Social Experiment

The Social Experiment is a collaboration between artists Klaas van Gorkum, Iratxe Jaio, Wouter Osterholt, Jonas Staal and Elke Uitentuis. In October 2011 they will organise a training in self-protection for artists. During three days a select group of participants, comprising of students, teachers, artists and other interested parties, will work on improving their resilience.

Under the guidance of two instructors from the police academy they will be trained in interrogation techniques (questioning and being examined) as well as how to deal with violence (indexing of violent situations and regulating or breaking up such situations). Through screenings, debates and relevant literature, participants will also be stimulated to apply this knowledge within their own practices.

The training takes place from 15 to 17 October. From day one, participants will follow a collective program, and will eat and sleep together in blockhuts that have been hired for this purpose. The program is free of charge, but needs to be followed in its entirety.

The People United Will Never Be Defeated - Exhibition

From 19 February to 18 April, TENT. presents the group exhibition The People United Will Never Be Defeated. A topical exhibition around the municipal elections of 3 March 2010, in which the relationships between art and politics are critically examined. Artists have long been aware of the social implications of their work. Politicians also frequently talk about the role of art in society. A certain form of social engagement can after all be found in almost every work of art. In The People United Will Never Be Defeated it is, however, not about art demonstrating its engagement. The focus is on artists who emphatically, and explicitly, raise the issue of the political system: the voting, the speechmaking, the campaigns, the meetings, the decisions. By getting close to the politician they enter into dialogue with the established order.
