The Memeing of Life
The Memeing of Life is what you could call ‘swipe-cabaret’: one act follows another at a dazzling speed.
If society produces the art it deserves, it should come as no surprise that nowadays there is a great amount of absurd nonsense to be found on the internet.
What is PC (political correctness)? What is acceptable and what is not? How did a silly frog become the mascot of far right? How is it possible that Gen Z is marching for the climate on Thursday and sharing (politically incorrect) cringy memes on Friday?
Bas Vanderschoot and Jeff Aendenboom take a dive into the rabbithole known as the internet in order to find, question, mix up, reverse, reassemble The Memeing of Life and then tear it down again. Memeing life itself. Fighting madness with madness. Is there really art to be found at the bottom of the net or is it just trash?
