Artist Talk with Rob Scholte (The Netherlands)

Rob Scholte
May 31, 2021
at 20:00

There is no such thing as Originality

One of the most recognizable Dutch Contemporary Artists, whose artwork based on the Reproduction, argues that there is no Originality in art (“There is no such thing as originality”). Unique was his artistic path, which on the one hand was marked by extremely fruitful artistic pursuits, with the inclusion of works in the International Art Collections and Exhibitions around the world (among others at the prestigious documenta in Kassel and at the Venice Biennial where he represented his country in the Dutch Pavilion), as well as tragic events such as the loss of a leg in the explosion of a bomb under his car and the forced eviction from his own Rob Scholte Museum in Den Helder, for which he is still seeking his rights.

We will talk with him about the disappearance of cultural spaces, about the State’s weak attitude towards artists and about his artistic paths. Rob will talk about his museum, which in the Dutch city of Den Helder used to attract number of visitors, volunteers and artists, and about an extensive collection of authorial and foreign works of art, including a large collection of Tapestries seized by State. The Live Stream of the artist talk is an opportunity for viewers and followers of his work, to participate in the debate with their questions.

The discussion will be led by Vida Jocif.
