“I was born in 1975, Bas Jan Ader disappeared, Céline Berger was two years old and living in a commune
in France and Natalie Dunn won the World Roller Skating Championships in LA”
The 1970’s were a decade of radical activism and political division. Growing scepticism in grand narratives
and modernity saw the decade end with texts like Lyotard’s La Condition postmoderne (1979; The Postmodern Condition) A period where work and leisure, labour was questioned, held up to critique, where we sought utopias, the miraculous or simply pleasure.
1975 presents three artists all with close working and living relationships to the Netherlands, who use
history in their work, a shared philosophy about family, the environment and work.
