CONSTANT DULLAART (artist, Amsterdam / Berlin)
Performing with identities, or contemporary materiality in a networked landscape
In a time where everybody is their own brand, and social capital becomes the commodity of an attention economy, how can we make artworks truly reflect on our changing cultures?
Dullaart will discuss his practice and recent works in which he uses the notion of the start-up, bought social media followers reciting poetry, distributed images, and encryption to highlight our contemporary materiality.
Constant Dullaart,*1979, Leiderdorp, Netherlands, lives and works in Berlin, Germany and Amsterdam, Netherlands. Constant Dullaart‘s practice reflects on the broad cultural and social effects of communication and image processing technologies, from performatively distributing artificial social capital on social media to completing a staff-pick Kickstarter campaign for a hardware start-up called Dulltech™. His work includes websites, performances, routers, installations, startups, armies, and manipulated found images, frequently juxtaposing or consolidating technically dichotomized presentation realms.Publication date: 6 May '20
