Expositie ‘Steal like an Artist!’ 1 oktober @ 7:30 pm - 25 oktober @ 5:00 pm Kunstpodium T Tilburg | Noordstraat 105 | Tilburg www.kunstpodium-t.com The book Distant Suffering, Morality, Media and Politics by the sociologist Luc Boltanski forms the intellectual basis of the art series DISTANT SUFFERING [ 2013 - ]. The inspiration of the work ‘DISTANT SUFFERING VI | i.d. of a shared key #1’ came from my own experiences in Palestine - the West Bank - and the poem by Kahlil Gibran, ‘The Garden of The Prophet’: Pity the nation divided into fragments, each fragment deeming itself a nation. As fort he poetic layer: the biscuit tin functions as a container of the memories of my own childhood in which I stored and kept my treasures. At the same time, it is the metaphor of the forgotten memory [with forgotten postcards, forgotten coins from visited countries, etc.] - which everyone has stored somewhere and that shows up at every time you move to another place to get a forgotten place again. Likewise, the memory of Boltanski's work is never far away . . .

Click here for the catalog ‘the book’. ‘Instead of providing us with a slick and streamlined finished art object, Overvliet’s ‘book’ challenges us to join him in a slow, detailed – and potentially frustrating – engagement with contemporary media. Thus, the work doesn’t provide us with an endpoint, but instead creates a breathing space. A moment to step outside the numbing, high-speed stream of fear-inducing media spectacles.’ Dr. D.

Hans Overvliet has been investigating the role of the mass media with regard to reporting on (military) violence and the fading memories of violence since 2013. As a reporter, Overvliet was an eyewitness to the events in the Middle East during the 1980s, and his experiences resonate in his artseries Distant Suffering. The title is taken from Luc Boltanski’s book Distant Suffering, Morality, Media and Politics. Overvliet employs an apparently controversial strategy: that of poetic images, inspired by the words of Percy Bysshe Shelley (1792 – 1822): Poets are the un-acknowledged legislators of the world. Among other things, Hans Overvliet investigates the ‘ownership’ of the incident, as well as the stories passed down versus their documentation. The themes have a strong connection to visual culture in general, particularly the information overload and its thoughtless consumption. In the project Distant Suffering, Overvliet questions the role of the viewer and his own role as an artist, as well as the neutrality and security of the art space.
