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 works about the laziness an 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 exhibitionat Witte de With just a little start, of better said, a little begin, shedefinitely will go to larger series of museum exhibitions all over Europe.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.When I went to the Witte de With I did not exactly knew what I could aspectand how theexhibition should look like, I did saw some pictures on the internet so I recognized some of the pieces of art from the pictures I saw on the internet .I knew I was going to watch to an exhibition of the artist Cosima von Bonin, but I did notknew anything further and I also did not knew why she made this types of art and where itwas standing for.
