Zeno van den Broek, Artist in distribution, Netherlands, 1982
Zeno van den Broek is a Dutch composer and artist whose works investigate and unsettle the relationships between people and fabricated surroundings. He utilises audiovisual means to create site- and concept-specific works which interrogate conventional conceptions of our experience of space. These works create visceral experiences that force new perspectives on the spaces they occupy or represent, whether these spaces are physical or digital.
Van den Broek aims to create moments of disruption, friction and possibility that activate our sense of agency and jolt us out of our habitual consumption of space towards exploration and direct experience. These moments of agency allow visitors to become active participants of van den Broek’s work and, in important ways, complete it.
Zeno van den Broek works with esteemed partners such as Gaudeamus, LIMA and Slagwerk Den Haag. He presents his work at venues and festivals such as the International Film Festival Rotterdam, Old Church Amsterdam, Rewire and the Louvre for Rencontres Internationales. His music has been released by labels such as Moving Furniture Records, Unsounds and The Tapeworm.
