Tijdens de Amsterdam Art Fair is werk te bewonderen dat Aldo van den Broek maakte tijdens zijn artist in residence in Kings County Hospital, een psychiatriche kliniek in New York. Aldo verbleef hier vier maanden op uitnodiging van Beautiful Distress.
"In 2015 He got invited to the artist in residence ‘Beautiful Distress’ to stay for four months at the psychiatric department of ‘Kings County Hospital', the only mental institution in New York with a government-sponsored health insurance. By living so intensively in between mostly poor and mentally ill people Aldo got confronted with his own way of living, working and surviving. His work tells the story about his interpretation of the pureness and beauty in the ugliness."
