Proposal: more critical art

Striking is that no critical art is found. The art is not confronting: the filosofical message is many times expressed on a amusing and reminiscent way. A view pieces provoked controvery and were even replaced because of this.

Promoting bigger sizes

It’s true: the number of internationally famed artists is comparible with the numbers in Berlin and San Francisco. I would like to combine this fact with the fact that a common feature of the art in Amsterdam is the (small) size of the objects; most of the art is lifesize. This makes me promote bigger, more critical art made by more internationally famed artists.

Key-words of the projects in Amsterdam: critical, serious, big size, professional artist.

20 pieces of art are chosen from Beijing, Berlin, Hong Kong, London, Los Angeles, Milan, New York, Praque, San Francisco and Shanghai.
