Films byTexts by Kris Van Aken
Kris Van Aken (1983) is a Dutch writer and artist, mainly working with performance. Manipulating the viewer into confusion, Van Aken often creates several practically identical works, in which thoughts that have apparently just been developed manifest themselves: notes are made and crossed out, “mistakes” are repeated. By demonstrating the omnipresent lingering of a “corporate world”, their works reference post-colonial theory as well as the avant-garde or the post-modern and the left-wing democratic movement as a form of resistance against the logic of the capitalist market system. They are currently based in Berlin.
