Gezelligheid - Imago Mundi
Contemporary Artists from the Netherlands
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Rosa Maria Falvo, Jelle Bouwhuis
An artistic reportage that explores the creativity of a culture devoted to cosmopolitanism, and through these images reveals a country where Art is interpreted as an element of shared values. A collection in which 141 artists experiment and bear witness to an extraordinary ability to express energy, dynamism, flexibility, tension. Artists who turn their eyes to the horizon to interpret the currents of our time: at times serene, at times harrowing and disorienting. With gezelligheid, that special atmosphere of reciprocity and a shared aesthetic that is at the heart of Dutch culture.
Gezelligheid. Contemporary Artists from the Netherlands is an Imago Mundi collection, a cultural, democratic, global, non-profit project, promoted by Luciano Benetton with the aim of creating the widest possible mapping of the different contemporary artistic experiences of our world. In Imago Mundi, each country is represented by the works of established artists and new talents, commissioned with the maximum freedom of expression, whose only constraint is the 10x12 cm format.
