PQ 2015: Shifting Perspectives
Visit our project website www.betweenrealities.nl
Naomi Bueno de Mesquita, Carly Everaert, Katja Heitmann, Julian Hetzel, Vinny Jones, Rick van der Linden, Maarten van Otterdijk, Hieke Pars, Eva Schippers en Florian de Visser are invited to take part of Between Realities, the Dutch entry to the PQ 2015.
A common feature of all participants of the Dutch entry to the 2015 Prague Quadrennial, is a plan that targets the public. They all aim to make a visitor to the PQ or an unsuspecting passerby experience the city in a different way or to shift their perspective in a subtle or not so subtle way.
The focus lies on the tension between, on the one hand the increasing Disneyfication of the city centre and the degree to which, especially during the summer, it caters wholly to the needs, wishes and expectations of the tourists and on the other hand, the ordinary, plain, everyday life that also exists – although not always visible. How do these two realities interrelate?
