THE GREAT PUBLIC SALE OF UNREALIZED BUT BRILLIANT IDEAS
Every artist keeps a collection of ideas somewhere that for one reason or another have never been realised, because they are too expensive, too simple, too complex, too much like something that has been done before, inappropriate in a certain context or so out of this world as an idea, that it would lose all value once it has been realised. For those artistic left-overs, there are two options: either they die a lonely death or the person who came up with them passes them on to someone else who breathes new life into them. This latter is possible thanks to an auction of absurd and utopian ideas. An evening where ideas change owners and the public is very welcome to put in a bid. You may well take a unique rough diamond home.
With ideas by Rimini Protokoll, Mette Edvardsen, Myriam van Imschoot, Bas Schevers, Stijn van Dorpe, Tim Etchells, Ief Spincemaille, Lea Martini, Ugo Dehaes, Dora Garcia, Michikazu Matsune, Lars Siltberg, Jimmy Robert and Benjamin Verdonck
