My report about the exhibitionCosima von Bonin.
Made by; Lisanne Laurens,H4A.
For this third report I have to make, I went to the exhibition of Cosima von Bonin, actually thewhole class went to that exhibition, but because I was sick those days, Icould not go withthem, so I had to go for myself. I went to the exhibition on Saturday the eleventh of December 2010. I went a bit late because I could not go alone and my parents had a busytime. The only thing now to do is making the report, I need to hurry up because in about 3days, the report has to be done.The first I am going to do, is tell you a little bit about what Cosima von Bonin meant by thiswhole exhibition.The German artist Cosima von Bonin who is born in 1962, presented at Witte de With Centerfor Contemporary Art, an exhibition of her brand new worksabout the laziness and wearinessphenomena. The title of the exhibition refers to the Italian expression "Dolce far niente," the"doing nothing". She definitely wanted to make an exhibition about this expression.For Cosima von Bonin is this exhibition at Witte de With just a little start, of better said, a littlebegin, she definitely will go to largerseries of museum exhibitions all overEurope.With all the work Cosima von Boninhad to do, she did not had the feelingof the doing nothing, she had to workhard, for all the pieces of art she hadto make..
With the exhibition of Cosima von Bonin, you sometimes can see, but sometimes you can·tsee what is has to do with ¶the doing nothing·. If you can·t see what she means or what it hasto do with that, you still have to figure out for yourself what it means, so technically you stillhave to think and that is not doing nothing, so I think that the exhibition has two ways towatch at it.
