- INTUITIVE ENCYCLOPEDIA
ArtistsPRINT THIS PAGE
Alexander Nieuwenhuis graduated cum laude from the Herman Teirlinck Institute in 2009 and has since worked in a multitude of countries. Nieuwenhuis is currently developing the Intuitive Encyclopedia at Dasarts as a hybrid between literature and theatre. The project tries to map limits of rational knowledge, derive stories from these limits and cultivate a sense of wonder towards all we do not know. The encyclopedic texts have a wide range from the migration of the Monarch butterfly to the suitcase that accompanied Walter Benjamin to his suicide, the subject matter is unrestricted and intuitive. During this research, Nieuwenhuis encountered a subject that seems too vast to tackle alone; the subject of domestication. In this first Encyclopedic Session at Working Title Situation #3 Nieuwenhuis has worked together with his participants, tapping into each other's knowledge, experience and poetics to create a story about how we supposedly developed from cave-men to law abiding citizens.
