Haperende Mens is bringing disturbing art and music. This year we will focus on the overwhelming moments in which we seem to lose control or can’t control life at all. Think for example of moments when ‘nature’ within us (sex, chemistry, hormones, death, illness) or outside us (power of nature, war….) is taking over.
