m e a n w h i l e . . . is a question: What happens to performance when the spotlight of attention wanders on, when the performative act is over? What does performance enable? How does it develop further?
We are interested in the spaces in-between, the carrying and connecting elements between the intermittent performative acts, an enhanced form of the visibility and visualisation of performance.

m e a n w h i l e . . . is an experiment.

Fun Facts – Women in Art, 2016



In a modern and open-minded art world the mentality of a “boys club” still casts its shadow over female artists all over the world. Voices are being raised to create awareness, which thereby change the structures in which the art world is embedded. Change is happening everywhere, but somehow change has slowed down and in the end many things remain the same. What has changed and what hasn’t can be measured through facts – “fun facts” that might give us an insight about the shadows in the art world.

thinking like a machine – we don’t speak the same language anymore, 2017

performance, object, painting


Since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution the human has increasingly adapted to a co-existence with machines. The human has become a prosthesis for the non-organic body of the industrial factory. The promise was that humans of the future will not have to work; machines will lighten the load. However, one’s own identity and social status became increasingly tied to her/his occupation.

With the invention of the computer, machines acquired a brain. It seems that the desire to create machines that think like humans bred humans that think like machines. More and more people identify with the work they do, no matter how unnecessary or meaningless these activities are. What happens when production processes are now only executed by artificially intelligent systems? What do we do now that the human is redundant?
