On the occasion of festivalfilosofia2020 Metronom presents Dump!, solo show by artist Thomas Kuijpers, curated by Gabriele Tosi.


Dump! is the landfill that metaphorically collects the numerous forms that facts, news, events take on when communicated to us. By connecting and combining different levels of information and the way in which they construct and shape the narratives of events, Kuijpers tries to orient himself in the chaotic and uncontrollable flow of information that inhabits our mind. Interested in the link between the real event and its potential visual and communicative forms, his practice archives and makes ironically tangible a set of contemporary imageries that invalidates the subjective perception of reality. Through an obsessive and analogue collecting, he gathers commonly used objects together with newspaper or magazine clippings, advertising flyers, but also obsolete technological tools, ironically revealing the effects of exposure to populist-based communication. In a context in which pop culture is increasingly imbued and exploited with political content, between activism and radicality, Kuijpers' work analyzes and reveals how this constant exposure to virtual narratives impacts our experience of reality and conditions our behaviors.
