SEE OVERLEAF is a research project of students and alumni of the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten in Utrecht and Vivian Bax from the MA St. Joost in Den Bosch. At the invitation of Het Vijfde Seizoen, the artists worked in the residency at the psychiatric institution Willem Arntsz Hoeve. Inspired by this unique place and in collaboration with patients from the institution, they made new work.

Beautiful Distress project space
Ms. van Riemsdijkweg 41 - Amsterdam-North
Airy, tender, evasive, scanning, spontaneous, negative, improvising: SEE OVERLEAF shows how art can relate to psychiatry from different perspectives. For example, Nuni Weisz created musical instruments that allow you to listen to the mood of others and researched Vivian Bax methods to channel anger. Koen Kloosterhuis made a more than life-size ear and wrote a surreal story inspired by the experience of one of the patients with whom he attracted a lot.
The exhibition is opened by Frank Koolen, head of Fine Art HKU and Anno Dijkstra, lecturer HKU. Furthermore, an interactive performance by Anita Horvȧth takes place.
Beautiful Distress Kunstmanifestatie was a great success! That is why Het Vijfde Seizoen and Beautiful Distress will continue to work together in the new project space: Beautiful Distress in Amsterdam-Noord (between Sexy Land and New Dakota)
