Project SWEEP

    In 2014 the world commemorated the fact that 100 years ago the First World War broke out. Although the Dutch were not a warring party, the country faced a number of problems with far-reaching consequences. The mobilization of the Dutch army was an operation on an unprecedented scale. Large numbers of for the most part Belgian refugees flooded the country after the fall of Antwerp in October 1914, resulting in years of austerity and culminating in the notorious Potato Riot in Amsterdam. These experiences motivated unexpected behaviour. Nowadays increasingly more voices claim   that the Dutch impartiality during the First World War gave rise to the reluctant and at times even apathetic attitude of the Dutch during the Second World War.

How can feelings of guilt and shame be transformed into self-knowledge? To know oneself in accordance with oneself, others and the world is the good life. But what exactly do we mean by 'good life' and 'good people'? And when do good people turn evil? How complex are these concepts 'good' and 'evil' and how are they tied up with our notions of guilt and shame?

    oses   Over Schuld en Schaamte (dutch only)
This publication discusses the outcome of a philosophical and artistic investigation into complex patterns of behaviour. Negative connotations and positive aspects of guilt and shame are connected convincingly to the artistic process that is used by the artist to produce new work. As a consequence, a different light is shed on the concepts of guilt and shame. The author shows in an intriguing way how adapting an artistic attitude can help us think in a more peaceful and independent manner.
