Head (Without World) is a multimedia-installation which combines elements from my visual archive with the outcome of my artistic research which I had been focusing on throught my last year
at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie. My thesis with the title Versions of Hysteria: Power Dynamics at Play in the Work of Ingeborg Bachmann & Chantal Akerman is an analysis of the phenomenon
of hysteria and how it can serve as a tool to foreground dynamics of power within a specific cultural context. The installation is consists of pasting tables, Tv-cubes, booklets that contain images
of fire, vitrines, an Afghan Kelim and a self-portrait in clay.


The painting in the photograph belongs to Nina Anderson.
