Beautiful Distress was founded on the concept that there is a great deal of mental suffering, that not enough people are aware of this and that not enough is done to stop it.

The Foundation uses art in an attempt to open up the world of psychiatry and battle the stigma attached to it.

Why art? Beautiful Distress believes that art is pre-eminently capable of articulating and depicting the human condition

Mission Nose Out

Stichting Beautiful Distress

A voyage of discovery, an encounter, an art project

Opening
THURSDAY, 21 JUNE, 2018, 16.00 HRS

Location
Beautiful Distress Huis  Ms. van Riemsdijkweg 41A, 1033 RC Amsterdam

Duration
21 June - 1 July 12:00 - 18:00

A group of students from the Rietveld Academy and a group of New Amsterdamers artists (refugees with residence permit) went in couples on a voyage of discovery, through new experiences and places they have never been to before. They will share the results of this experience, ideas they've exchanged, and artworks they've made. The variety of cultural backgrounds played a decisive role in this project. Both, the New Amsterdamers and the students come from countries from all around the world.

The couples have worked on joint or separate works that formed a combination, a dialogue, or an encounter between them, Photography students at the Academy and their multidisciplinary art mates.

Art is the connecting factor.
A project supported by the municipality of Amsterdam and the Rietveld Academy.
