“My one regret in life is that I am not someone else.” Woody Allen - “Barbapapa could be anything he wanted to, so why did he act in such a dreadful animated film then?” Theo Maassen - “My biography is extremely simple; I have never moved. Everything which occurred in my past, occurred in my head.” Odilon Redon - “Some personages who never existed have become so embedded in history that it is unthinkable to imagine that they were never actually there.” Cees Nooteboom - “Buzz Aldrin’s story can be found by reading between the lines of Neil Armstrong’s or other major heroes.” Johan Harstad

Artist-duo Sjaak Langenberg and Rosé de Beer, conduct solicited and unsolicited research into the ins and outs of communities – social communities and working ones – with a sharp eye for the blind spots that exist as a consequence of habits and routines. In answer to the issues present in a particular community, they develop outlooks and interventions which are estranged from daily routine, yet are, at the same time, 'obvious solutions'. In doing so they also offer new approaches for all those involved. By placing local politics within a larger societal perspective, and bringing seemingly irreconcilable worlds together, they create scope for new perspectives. Within their societal infiltrations they make use of various media and forms of communication – continuously navigating between a stubbornly autonomous result and maximum public reach. As well as involvement in their joint practice, Sjaak Langenberg is also active as lecturer and text-writer, and Rosé de Beer as designer.
