Daan Samson // 2017


"Daan Samson (born 1973) is a Dutch artist. His work deals with taboos, embarrassments and achievements of the welfare state. Samson lives and works in Rotterdam. He is regarded as an exponent of a new category media artists. By taking up distinct positions in the media, social issues are being broached. In Samson’s case, the artist distributes works that call for the rejection of the concept of sinfulness. According to some critics he takes a cynical stance, bearing resemblance to a right‑wing liberal argument. In Samson’s view, even intellectuals should not hesitate to enjoy worldly pleasures. "
