SBK Art voucher, art as a present

Tibor Dieters ‘Network’

06/10/2021 - 14/11/2021 @ SBK Amsterdam KNSM

In 2019 Tibor Dieters won the SBK Sprouts Young Talents Award. From October 6 to November 14, he shows his project Network in his solo exhibition.

For this project, Tibor Dieters transforms postal boxes into pinhole cameras, which he then sends around the art world. Like a windshield that catches flies, the mail boxes return as proof of their journey. They summarize their journey in one image, a photogram, replete with the sprawling geometry of DHL warehouses. The image is the result of the routes and the otherwise invisible labor of on-duty postmen and couriers. The process uniquely exposes the labor required to produce images and reveals the otherwise elusive infrastructure of cultural and institutional capital. Like August Sander's 'Face of Our Time', the project also exists as a growing catalog of the Dutch art industry, based on the interconnectedness of artists, curators, gallery owners and their ancillary industries — such as framers, workshop assistants and postmen. In collaboration with various employees of SBK Kunstuitleen & Galerie Dieters has created a unique series of location-specificphotograms by sending his pinhole postal boxes to KNSM-laan 307-309. The result represents the labor that brought the postal box from his studio directly to the front door of SBK. In addition to his photograms, Dieters presents a completely new series of works. Festive finissage: Sunday 14 November. Tibor Dieters will be present from 4 pm to answer any questions about his work. You are cordially invited to attend this finissage, but of course you can also visit the exhibition on one of the other days! Opening hours: From Wednesday to Sunday 11 am - 6 pm   Instagram Tibor Dieters
