2013 - present

This research proposal started after sending a letter in October 2013 to the director of the Mondriaan Fund, Birgit Donker.

United 93 wants to investigate the role and influence of art related texts. How text influences the actual perception of art and could lead to support and means for its realization. How are textual qualifications formulated that allow some visuals to 'happen', while other texts lead to exclusion.

Therefore I requested the director's permission to study the Mondriaan reports from several proposals that were or were not rewarded by the Fund. By analyzing these different applications I would like to formulate an understanding over the allowed and facilitated space for visual experiments in our society. After all, the available means and supported ideas altogether form the spatial environment we see and consider our daily surrounding (reality).

In our market economy public funds as the Mondriaan Fund play a crucial role, they can facilitate experiments that the market is simply not stimulating or facilitating. Therefore it has the potential to visualize the 'unknown'.

Investigation so far:

A letter was send to Birgit Donker (Director): 04/10/2013

Since there was no answer I spoke on the phone with Sarah Malko, Executive Secretary about this matter: 01/11/2013

Received an email by Sarah Malko, Executive Secretary, where she appoints Arsine Nazarian, project assistant of the Mondriaan Fund to help me and adds the message that it will take some time for her to answer my question: 01/11 /2013

01/11/2013 till now I am waiting for response.

To be continued (last updated 31-10-2017).
