About the Salon Presenters
As of 2005 Wouter Osterholt and Elke Uitentuis have been collaborating together as an artistduo. Their work utilizes a context-specific approach, investigating the relationship between people and their surroundings. They try to visualize the friction of regulation and improvisation in relationship to the planning of society and space and to unravel hidden hierarchies in order to offer an insight into the contradicting interests defining the use of public space. The test-situations they create are supposed to challenge people to redefine their relationship with their surroundings and their personal attitude towards ‘citizenship’.
