Today we are starting a new social project that is about the way of 'seeing' and considering the world as the Haudenosaunee, the Native Americans do.
The Iroquois or Haudenosaunee are a confederation of five and later six linguistically and ethnically related nations in North America. In this context, they are also called "The Six Nations." The Iroquois collectively call themselves Haudenosaunee, translated; "people of the longhouse."
The vision of the Haudenosaunee is that we only have the world on loan. Every social decision must consider what it means for our children over the next seven generations.
I will soon be leaving for North America where I will be conducting interviews with people from the Haudenosaunee leading to an audio-visual document.
Completion and presentation of #7 will take place at COVRA with an exhibition from January 10 to March 25, 2020. Lectures and teaching programs for primary and secondary schools and the business community will also follow.
With #7 we hope to start a movement and raise awareness. It's time for change and if you want that, you have to start with yourself. I do that from my artistry in this way.
