The revelation of concealed: Politics (in)form: Wob (Freedom of Information Act) results

Publication, public intervention and exhibition in collaboration with Onomatopee.

Book launch: March 22, 2012, 19:00-21:00

The past years I delved into the archives of Buro Jansen & Janssen, an investigation agency that monitors the police, judiciary and intelligence services using the Wob as one of its research tools. I selected various files as readymades of political aesthetics. These A4s are palimpsest —censored texts merging into newly created and visually potent images.

Public intervention

In different locations in greater Eindhoven, advertisement boards in and around the city of Eindhoven were temporarily hijacked with a Wob image and the announcement for the exhibition opening on January 20, 2012 at Onomatopee.

Exhibition is until February 26, 2012 at Onomatopee, Eindhoven, NL, maybe longer
