In the photo exhibition entitled "Dutch Bushmen Tribe a Performance Materialized" Toine Klaassen captures the still and intimate concentration of his working process during his complex and ephemeral performance practice. The circumstances are not always ideal. It's all about staging versus accident, concentration versus fatigue and control versus freedom.
As Klaassen puts it: life is fulfilling a paradox. The photo series opposes to a less miraculous Western civilization and embraces pluralistic 'cultural hybrids' like we inevitably become in our everyday existence. Certainly in Rotterdam!
This project is realized with the help and advise of Lin Klaassen-Zwamborn and is made possible by CBK Rotterdam.
