EXHIBITION | Humores Humor by Simon Keizer

Humores Humor by Simon Keizer
13 May - 26 June
Opening Event: Friday, May 13th

In Humores Humor, Hamburger Community resident artist Simon Keizer continues his yearlong exploration in dancing, playing, sound, humor, the body, community, curiosity, collaboration and improvisation pursued in many directions with the objective of boosting moral. While there is also space reserved for anger, tears and other bodily fluids, Humores Humor is set to discover the healing potential of art, as Keizer invites you to partake and experience, and to become an integral part in the exhibition during the six weeks of its running.

Using the space at Roodkapje as a place to come together, a stage to perform, to build, watch movies, eat, and to rest and recharge, you are all invited to join along every step of the way.

As part of Humores Humor Simon is hosting an extended program in the exhibition space, so look out for the following dates:
- 13 May: Festive Opening Event with performances by Simon Keizer and concert by Karel
- 29 May: A guided laughter medidation workshop with Laaraji
- June 18: Museumnacht in collaboration with Futura Resistenza and the Hamburger Community of Live
- June 12, 19, and 26: A Trilogy of Life with Simon Keizer - During the three last Sunday's of Humores Humor, you can join Simon as he is viewing films and clips that have inspired him and his work

In carnivalesque installations and performance works, Simon Keizer uses historic facts and events to get a new perspective on the human relationship with the body, and between bodies in general. Utilizing thought processes and events from the past as tools to take distance and understand concepts of today, Keizer’s works are ritualistic in nature and can also take the shape of gatherings or collective efforts. Starting from a culture of laughter, visitors often are invited to partake and become a part of the work. With a strong believe in the healing potential of art, Keizer’s installations, as well as sounds and his audience are used as a script for his improvised performances.

Humores Humor is part of Roodkapje's Hamburger Community of Art, and was made possible with the kind support of the Amarte Foundation and Gemeente Rotterdam
