Young Art Night
28/03/2014
21:00 – 02:00
Facebook Event

Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven / Netherlands is understandig themselves as ‚one of the first public museums for contemporary art to be established in Europe. The museum’s collection of around 2700 works of art includes key works and archives by Lissitzky, Picasso, Kokoschka, Chagall, Beuys, McCarthy, Daniëls and Körmeling. The museum has an experimental approach towards art’s role in society. Openness, hospitality and knowledge exchange are important.‘

So they invited Sabine Taeubner and myself to do a SUPERHIGH Young Art Night. And we had a blast!

At Van Abbe, we created a ‚SUPERHIGH Yourself‘ parcours around our central video work, hacking the museum’s collection and placing how-to-posters next to famous art works of the 21st century. Visitors SUPERHIGHed themselves through DOPAMINE DISCO, ASMR, 12 CYCLE METH BREATH, BIG BINAURAL BEATBOX, CONCHA CONSCIOUSNESS, CHRONOSYNCLASTIC INFUNDIBULUM, KNOCK OUT KISS, EYEBALL LICKING, ENIGMA, GANZFELD, JENKEM, KNOCKOUT KISS or PORN. And the museum’s staff? Took care of the visitors! That’s why they wore ‚TRIPSITTER‘ T-Shirts.
