The GW – Same thang, 4 min, Color, Stereo, Netherlands, 2014

Arno Coenen is a Dutch artist. He also works as a curator and organizer.

The GW – Same Thang can be seen as an indictment of the political policy of Geert Wilders. It aggressively examines the Dutch political climate of the early ’10s. The fictive average Dutch couple Henk and Ingrid, introduced by Geert Wilders, and a flood of typical Dutch low culture play the main roles in this collage-like work, which predicts a dark future. Broken store windows, slogans like ‘You want some ! You loose some!’ and a heavy techno beat complete this ominous work. The GW – Same Thang is a digital political pamphlet.
