The Magnetic North & The Idea of Freedom

00:08:12 17 Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen
Sylvie Zijlmans (Geertruidenberg 1964) and Hewald Jongenelis (Etten-Leur 1962) make everyday life in a suburb of a sprawling Dutch town into a metaphor of the times. An artwork inspired by local issues that could have landed anywhere at the same time.


Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen presents an exhibition about the art of Zijlmans & Jongenelis: The Magnetic North & The Idea of Freedom. Films of the performances, in which a series of topical, bizarre phenomena occur, are directed in detail. The sound is so clear you can almost touch it.
