*24th June* at noon: ARTBOMB

Posted on June 22, 2011


On Friday the 24th of June at noon, Goleb is joining the initiative ARTBOMB.

Like many art institutions and initiatives in The Netherlands, we will ignite coloured smoke in front of our building. With this visible intervention we will rise up for the arts and express our support for artists and cultural organizations.

ARTBOMB is a peaceful art intervention initiated in The Netherlands. The Dutch Government is about to cut 40% of all cultural funding. This will result in the disappearance of a multitude of organizations that excel internationally in their field. This loss will be felt not only by the Dutch public but by the international community.

This visual act is a sign of resistance against the growing disdain for the arts within societies and governments worldwide, and a sign of support for those who face major cutbacks.
