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 the institutional situation:
The language of art becomes designer’s tool.
Artworks become ingredients.
An image becomes the message.
Teaser becomes a recipe.
The event is represented by a performative act.
The 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.
