‘Making the Personal Political’. Art by Hans van Houwelingen in the Public Domain
(David Stroband) The Low Countries – 2017, № 25, pp. 258-267
Van Houwelingen is an artist who always questions public space and, more specifically, the way we think about it, thereby putting it into sharper focus. He mainly operates in the public domain and whenever he is invited to make a work he makes it clear that art cannot function in isolation, but must actually be a relevant element in our society. Art cannot exist without historical awareness, politics, economics, philosophy and ethics. It is connected to all these things and must relate to them critically.
