Double Act

January 2010

Tricksters Tricked

Is all culture trickery? In a setting that somewhat resembles a Escher drawing, the exhibition ‘Tricksters Tricked – (un)covering identity’ at the Van Abbemuseum in the Dutch city of Eindhoven brings together art, design, visual research and live participatory interventions to focus on the dualities of the design act – an inevitably and simultaneous tale of communication and manipulation.
