For a program on Max Weber’s 100 years old notion of disenchantment of the world we created special Enchanted Bag full of happiness. WeberWoche was art and philosophy event to re-enchant visitors of Stroom Den Haag.
Imagine a recipe for everybody to adopt it as a technique for personal re-enchantment. To maximize our aim we changed institutional situation:
Language of art becomes designer’s tool.
Artworks become ingredients.
Image becomes message.
Teaser becomes a recipe.
Event is represented by performative act.
Exhibition was curated as a live event celebrating the re-enchantment of the world and ideas. Artists, performers, filmmakers and theoreticians were questioning the role of enchantment in today’s Western society.
