HARMEN DE HOOP (NL)

Harmen de Hoop is a conceptual artist whose work mostly takes place in the public space. He seeks out site-specific locations (from libraries to busy public squares) for his anonymous and illegal interventions and performances, which he then documents and presents in exhibitions after the event.

Through his work, Harmen de Hoop demonstrates the implicit tension between the ways in which the government would like the public space to be used and the ways in which citizens often unexpectedly use it. With his interventions de Hoop breaches authoritarian systems of control to bring forward another, often more humane, perspective. Ostensibly, de Hoop encourages us to look at ourselves and our environment with fresh eyes, and a renewed sense of humour.
