We Are Public's Front Row presents a private viewing of the latest three videoworks of filmmaker and Sandberg graduate Donna Verheijden - paired with a talk with the artist herself. In her work, Donna Verheijden displays her understanding of mass and social media - centralizing on its seductions and underlying power structures. Handsome people, luxury and commercial-like lifestyles. A glossy decoy to something far more complex and dark - touching upon themes of hedonism, privacy and fixation. Donna makes us ask; sugar-sweet or rather sour-patched? All in the classrooms of De School.
Front Row will present Verheijden's All the World’s a Stage - Ways of Seeing, Land of Desire - Happy is the New Black and her brand new visual essay Kiss the Sky - Eye Trick the I. The three works form a trilogy, which has never been displayed back-to-back, on our contemporary imageculture and mediascape. In the presence of the artist, this will be the debut of Verheijden's trilogy.
