Willem de Kooning Academy 2017

In the project “AANdacht” we launched a crowdfunding campaign. Not to collect money, but to collect attention. Attention for loneliness and isolation. Every donator and visitor of the exposition ‘Hier besta ik’ receives an AANdacht-button to literally and figuratively turn him or herself on.

The project was exhibited in Museum Tot Zover in Amsterdam in 2018

The Dutch word “aandacht” (attention) is a merging of the words “aan” (on) and “dacht” (thought). By capitalizing “AAN”, the word “AANdacht” becomes an ON or ACTIVE sign of sorts.
