FRANS VAN LENT: UNNOTICED ART. Jap Sam Books, Heijningen, 2016. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 74 pp. 17 x 12 cm. ISBN 9789080867505 In English.
Publisher's description: Dutch performance, film and video artist Frans van Lent (b. 1955) believes that in our present time, passing unnoticed has become a noticeable experience. The popularity of social media and its promise of instant fame in fact emphasizes how much of our lives goes unmarked by public exposure or recognition. Unnoticed Art, a quietly designed index and description of the 34 performance ideas carried out by volunteers at the Unnoticed Art Festival (2014) seems designed to resist attention itself. The slender volume of black-and-white text with no other markings will pass almost invisible between other books on a bookshelf -- or will it? According to van Lent, the Unnoticed Art Festival -- which continues to be staged at an unannounced location and times -- embraces genuine engagement with a limited number of people, allowing for a more intense connection with those present.
