This edition of Haperende Mens will explore the idea of the sacred in the context of an overly regulated society. The present time in which political polarisation, alienation and thrill-seeking diverts us from inner experience and meaning. Where are those deep, intense moments that transcend our increasingly regulated daily lives? Through a music and arts programme Haperende Mens presents transgression, experiment and ritual as forms of sustainability; against the backdrop of today’s ever-increasing social disembodiment. Not your usual cup of herbal tea maybe. Rather a mixture of 'spiders, spit and broken bells.'

Haperende Mens at V2_

V2_ will show Eva and Franco Mattes’ For internet Use Only. This edition of 'Haperende Mens' will explore the idea of the sacred in the context of an overly regulated society. V2_ will show Eva and Franco Mattes’ For internet Use Only, a performance where a live stream of the artists’ computer desktop is projected in the gallery for 48 minutes, turning the audience into voyeurs of the everyday. This digital intimacy highlights the contradictory logic of this hypermediated space, where everything is both a private activity and public performance. While this engagement is playfully subversive, its implications are chillingly real against a backdrop where our data is increasingly mined, owned, sold and surveilled. The special live performance of For Internet Use Only will take place on Friday January 12th at V2_. The exhibition as a whole will be open from Friday 12 to Sunday 14 January.
