First Year (AKA The Trump Show), 2017

For this project, a commision from Museum Arnhem (NL) and Ruimtekoers Festival (also based in Arnhem), I assumed the role of Donald Trump. My previous project involved a lot of research into populist movents, which naturally led me to read a lot about Trump and his motives. With a question about the relevance of art in our contemporary society, and the purpose to make a approachable exhibition, I wondered what it would be like when one of the most powerful players on the world stage would have chosen to be an artist for a year, instead of the president. Method-acting as an artist you could call it. 

See here, the results of Donald Trumps first year as an artist.
