Title of the exhibition is inspired by a song from the Suripop Festival of Suriname in 1994, written by Rein Carrot: Net’Aleng. In the context of this event, Portrait of Tumpi Flow refers to the artist as changeable and transformable.

NET ‘ALENG: You Are NOT Invited! is the last show of three events. An exhibition that follows NEGROWHITE: Identity & Image (2010) and SHEMACHO: I challenge I (2012). In this event of abundant love and compelling contradictions, the spirit of the artist has met Others. This presentation includes works that manifest themselves as a democratic form of life-like art, prompted by aesthetic and conceptual considerations as well as politics. For example, EdKe is committed to MISSION 21: a network of artists, counselors and young people. The aim of this exhibition is to avoid polarizing politics and is aimed at a didactic approach that dares to challenge attitudes towards authority. The focus of the works is based on the problem of nation and relates to blurring the boundaries between the public and the private, for which Miguel Keerveld relates Donna Haraway’s A Cyborg Manifesto and to Alida Neslo’s non descriptive Alakondre Manifesto. The viewer is invited to participate and is challenged to complete the works himself with his own point of view, imagination and actions. This ‘solo’ show deals with political justice, personal limitation and social changeability.
