What is Keeping It Real Art Critics?

KIRAC bounces into institutions, art dealers, artists, and other members of the cultural establishment, creating new artistic territory as they go. The recurring characters* are living out their own cultural/mythological search for truth. Kirac is a loosely orchestrated, and meticulously assembled perspective on the different ideological and cultural frameworks that define our time. Every episode defines a specific mentally projected ‘problem’ and instead of solving the problem ideologically, Kirac ‘shows’ the labyrinths of thought and their institutionalised and sometimes enforced hierarchies. 

*recurring characters: Stefan Ruitenbeek (Artist, 1982, Breda), Kate Sinha (archaeologist, 1988, Deventer) and to a lesser degree Tarik Sadouma, Gerda Jonkerman and Paul van Esch
