1. Wendelien van Oldenborgh is one of five artists commissioned by If I Can’t Dance to make a new work as part of Edition IV – Affect (2010–2012).

      A prologue to the new work, Supposing I love you. And you also love me, will be presented at the 54th Venice Biennale in the exhibition Speech Matters of the Danish Pavilion. This work is co-commissioned by If I Can’t Dance. As part of the research for the new commission, Wendelien van Oldenborgh curated Cinema – this, Television – that in collaboration with If I Can’t Dance, on 29 March 2011 at the Rietveld Academie.

      Van Oldenborgh’s new work will be further developing themes she explored in the recent works Après La Reprise, la Prise (2009) and Pertinho de Alphaville (2010). Her research is guided by the current changes in feelings of collective strength, the loss and gain of a public voice, as well as the role of cultural production in relation to this.
