Dirty Water - Exhibition Opening

  • Schatjes 119 Oudezijds Voorburgwal Amsterdam, NH, 1012 Netherlands

Filthy fluids, poisoned pools, junk juice, stagnant sewage and street soup.
Crap-filled canals, polluted puddles, toxic-waste tanks, smelly streams and foul fountains.

We humans have become masters in creating a mess of the essential fluid that sustains us. The earth now has a wide variety of dirty waters and most people are oblivious to the man-made shit that floats in them. Half-eaten sandwiches, plastic bottles, sewage, heavy metals, poisons, nuclear waste.

Not your typical subjects of inspiration, right? Well, that depends on who you ask.
Ideas and artistic work will be presented somewhat ready, perhaps as they are being made, maybe not even close to being done. You might like what you see, you might not. It will be a constantly evolving collection of collaborative creative processes around all things dirty and watery; a wild, hopefully eye-opening, mind-bending and perception-stretching 'dirty water' ride.

We have invited a number of artists to participate and interpret the subject in their own way: to create something and add to the dialogue. We are also very open to new initiatives and welcome you to take part.
