The One Minutes Series of this summer is ‘Squeeze Crush Press Blush’ and is curated by Afra Eisma and Marnix van Uum. Twenty-one artists and filmmakers invite you to take a dive into their ever-changing minds. A crack in the gloss, a break, a rupture, a split, a breach, a slit, a smack, a smash, a blow, a bang, a grin, our mind is a container. The selected One Minutes were sent in from China, Belgium, Finland, France, Greece, Netherlands, Suriname, Turkey, United Kingdom and United States.

Afra Eisma (b. 1993, the Netherlands) creates intimate worlds bursting with colour and energy. Her work consists of tufted carpets, ceramics, drawings, paintings and
textiles that lead to radiant tactile installations in which connection and generosity
are central. She studied Fine Arts at the Royal Academy of Arts, the Hague, and
Central Saint Martin’s, London. She has recently shown work at Fries Museum, 1646,
Vleeshal (all in the Netherlands) and garden lab, Kyoto, Japan.
Marnix van Uum (b. 1991, the Netherlands) works with media (i.e. video, photography
and text) that have descriptive qualities and thus imply to depict (fragments of)
reality. He received his BFA from the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, as well as his BA
in media studies from the University of Amsterdam. Marnix has recently shown work
at the MACA Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Alicante (ES); The Wrong Biennale
(Online) and Art Rotterdam (NL).
