Blind Dates With The History Of Mankind (Rage and Time)
by Peter Baren

Peter Baren (The Netherlands) is a visual artist who has been working internationally since the late 80’s. His works have a collaborative streak and often revolve around the notion of ritual and the way it functions in various socio-cultural contexts. This is conveyed in his art through the use of concept of ‘otherness’ and ancient cultures. The performance presented at FLAM, is part of a recent series called BLIND DATES WITH THE HISTORY OF MANKIND. This multi-sensory work searches for a common ground between sensual bewilderment and political commentary, challenging the constructed nature of our ideas on progress and memory, derived from our social and cultural circumstances.

Performed by Peter Baren, Fazle Shairmahomed, Levi de Kleer, Aurelien Lepetit, Franziska Menge.
