Image poetry by Jedithja de Groot in Parool

The Museum for Non-Essential Art was founded by We Are Public to question the place that art has in our society, since non-essential shops were recently allowed to open their doors, but museums and cultural institutions had to remain closed. Annegien van Doorn created the Compulsive series for this museum. On the one hand, it refers to the way in which Van Doorn treats products with an irresistible urge to demolish them and transform them into something meaningful. And on the other hand it refers to and criticises our common compulsive shopping behaviour.
