Aanstoot paradox

PRESENTED ON SEP 18, 2018
IN TILBURG @ VOL 11

Michiel Bot is universitair docent Encyclopedie van het Recht aan de Tilburg University en op 18 september stelde hij enkele kritische vragen over wat hij de aanstootparadox noemt: "Aan de ene kant roept het opinie-establishment voortdurend dat de politieke correctheid van minderheden de grootste bedreiging is van onze vrijheid, terwijl het aan de andere kant juist de meerderheid is, inclusief het opinie-establishment, dat meer aanstoot lijkt te nemen dan ooit tevoren."

She sees herself as having been on a journey along a watercourse for some time now – sees how its speeding silts and swirling eddies have rendered her method of thinking and tactics for questioning the extraordinary relationships we have with the landscapes of architectures in which we reside.

The Portraiture Paradox

BY BEN FRISCH
@ VOL 2 ON APR 11, 2019

Ben Frisch has been an artist since the age of 2. He sold his first drawing to a classmate in grade 6 and he was hooked. Art as a career can be a challenging path to take especially as a portrait artist and that pursuit dominated his 20’s. Although Ben had many ups and downs, that dream never came to fruition. His passion for portraiture was put on a shelf and now at 36, he has not made art for a long time. It’s sad to think that dream may have died but in hindsight, Ben now sees the paradox that plagued him. This is the story of Ben's career as a portrait artist and why he was doomed to fail.
