About Karel van Laere
From his studio in The Hague, Karel van Laere is working on one-of-a-kind mixtures of visual and performance art. In his resulting artworks, he attempts to answer fundamental questions such as ‘what is it like to be a computer?’, ‘what if it were possible to switch off your body?’ or ‘what happens when I hypnotise myself and dancers manipulate my body?’
Travel is an important source of inspiration for Karel. The original plan was for him to do a residency in Russia right now, but as the trip is cancelled he is working closer to home. Based in North-Holland, he is working on a video artwork about blind people’s dreams.
