Foundation - a multidisciplinair performative installation about the cosmetic role of the artist in the process of gentrification
‘The Dutch group Questions Collective (...) use larger-than-life beauty tools to draw metaphorical connections between the “beautification” of womens’ bodies using cosmetics and neighborhood gentrification. The collective addresses the role of artists, often cited by real estate speculators as “tastemakers” and “early-adopters”, in the transformation of cities into economically exclusive playgrounds for the bourgeoisie.’
