Opening (De)quantify me!

On Friday the 8th April at 16.00 hrs, the opening of academy exhibition (De)quantify Me! will take place in TENT. The exhibition is the concluding event of (De)quantify Me!, an educational project in collaboration with the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague and the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam.

In March, students gathered at TENT to meet an artist from the exhibition Spending Quality Time With My Quantified Self, took part in an assignment and attended a lecture by our curators Jesse van Oosten and Niekolaas Johannes Lekkerkerk. Afterwards, all participating students developed a work of art in three weeks. The current group exhibition is the starting point and inspiration for students to reflect on the consequences of digitalization and quantification for our physical bodies and identities.

Curator Jesse van Oosten, assistant curator Noor Kloosterman and head of education Judith Vorwerk selected four works that will be shown in TENT’s Gym from 8 to 10 April.
