Performance – and net artist Annie Abrahams tackles the insult, she insults, is insulted and wants to be insulted. You can ask her why, but she won’t respond.

Snotlap is a Dutch argot word for handkerchief used when the artist was a little girl to insult schoolmates.

Snotlap is a performance about power relations, gender, taboos, childhood and fathers (and of course mothers), resistance and control, transcending interdictions and delivery.

Snotlap invites the public to join in, to experience insulting mediated by technologie using videostreaming technics. Is it different? Easier, hilarious, insulting, liberating? Makes it feel you powerful? Can you play with it? And why should you do it?

English equivalent of TafelLaken – this time I intend not to start laughing and I prepare to stand the insults.

Perform or Die
Annie Abrahams (Multimedia Artist)

We live in a very demanding society, where even our “friends” have become commodities. Annie Abrahams will talk about how she, in her performance practice, tries to find ways to escape or to counterbalance this tendency.
