With the large scale video installation Guilty Landscapes Dries Verhoeven brings the reality of uncomfortable news images confrontingly close. He poses the question of whether a personal connection is possible between the viewer and the person being viewed. What if the news were to turn and look at its witnesses; what if the protagonists on the evening news were to look us in the eye?
During the Dutch Design Week, as part of the exhibition 'For Play, Shaping Sexuality', you will have the chance to experience the video-installation Guilty Landscapes IV yourself.
Tickets for Guilty Landscapes IV are available here*!
In 2016 Verhoeven makes a series of different episodes of Guilty Landscapes. SPRING Festival in Utrecht presented the first episode from the series, Foreign Affairs in Berlin the second, Boulevard Theatre Festival ‘s-Hertogenbosch the third and MU will present the fourth episode during the Dutch Design Week.
When 22 October - 30 October 2016
Saturday - Sunday from 11.00 - 18.00 uur
