Mark Vennegoor (1981) challenges structures in order to stimulate reflection on habits, normative behavior and routines, and to eventually explore alternatives. Through longterm projects like ’’’Smoothie Takeover”, which he developed during an artist residency at the Bemis Center of Contemporary Arts, he intervenes also outside the “white cube”. In the project “DenimEconomics” Mark tries to create a new economic theory repairing imbalances in current economic behavior. Mark has an educational background in both International Business (Maastricht University) and Arts (Gerrit Rietveld Academie), and likes to mix these disciplines as well as to play with his ambiguity towards them.
