Homestead of Dilution (HD, 48′, 2016)
“Homestead of Dilution is a video about the experiment of ‘dilution’ in a mental health care institute with a long tradition, located in the Dutch countryside. In 2015 I have lived and worked together with art historian Marieke van Rooy and our two kids in the artist in residency Het Vijfde Seizoen, on the grounds of the mental health care institute Willem Arntz Hoeve/Altrecht in Den Dolder. We have paid attention to the actual reform of the Dutch health care, by researching the heritage and actuality of Nieuw Dennendal. This was a radical experiment for mental health care in the Seventies by the psychologist Carel Muller and took place on the terrain where Het Vijfde Seizoen is located. Muller promoted an extreme emancipation of the mentally ill patients and wanted to open the ‘asylum’ for others. Together with the progressive architect Van Klingeren he proposed a transformation of the institute by adding functions that could be used by others. This process of mixing different people, was called ‘dilution’ (verdunning). Mullers famous experiment was ended after four years. During our residency we have questioned the possibilities of dilution nowadays at the Willem Arntsz Hoeve, which will be closed down in the next years.”

Homestead of Dilution (HD, 48′, 2016)
Domenico Mangano: “Homestead of Dilution is een video over het experiment van “verdunning” in een instelling voor verstandelijk gehandicapten. In 2015 heb ik samen met kunsthistoricus Marieke van Rooy en onze twee kinderen als artist in residence gewoond en gewerkt in het Vijfde Seizoen, in de instelling Willem Arntsz Hoeve in Den Dolder, onderdeel van het geestelijke gezondheidszorg conglomeraat Altrecht.
We hebben er aandacht besteed aan een heuse hervorming van de geestelijke gezondheidszorg in Nederland door onderzoek te doen naar de erfenis en actualiteit Van Nieuw Dennendal, een radicaal geestelijke gezondheidsexperiment dat in de jaren zeventig werd uitgevoerd door de psycholoog Carel Muller op het terrein van het Vijfde Seizoen. Muller was voorstander van een extreme emancipatie van geesteszieken en stelde samen met de progressieve architect Van Klingeren een transformatie van de instelling voor door een vermengingsproces van diverse personen tot stand te brengen, ook wel verdunning (dilution) genoemd. Het experiment werd na vier jaar afgesloten. Tijdens onze residency hebben we de mogelijkheid van verdunning heden ten dage bij de Willem Arntsz Hoeve ter sprake gebracht, in het licht van de sluiting van de instelling in de komende jaren”.

Lorenzo Benedetti (Rome, 1972) woont en werkt tussen Zwitserland, Frankrijk en Nederland. Hij is curator hedendaagse kunst in het Kunstmuseum in St. Gallen en was directeur van de Vleeshal in Middelburg. Van 2014 tot 2016 was hij directeur van De Appel Arts Centre in Amsterdam.

Homestead of Dilution (HD, 48′, 2016)
“‘Homestead of Dilution’ è un video sull’esperimento della “diluizione” in un istituto di salute mentale con una lunga tradizione, situato nella campagna olandese. Nel 2015 ho vissuto e lavorato insieme allo storica dell’arte Marieke van Rooy e ai nostri due figli nella residenza per artisti Het Vijfde Seizoen, base dell’istituto di salute mentale Willem Arntz Hoeve / Altrecht di Den Dolder. Abbiamo prestato attenzione alla reale riforma dell’assistenza sanitaria olandese, ricercando l’eredità e l’attualità del Nieuw Dennendal, un esperimento radicale per la cura del benessere mentale negli anni Settanta realizzato dallo psicologo Carel Muller, svolto sul terreno dove si trova Het Vijfde Seizoen. Muller ha promosso un’estrema emancipazione dei malati mentali e insieme all’architetto progressista Van Klingeren ha proposto una trasformazione dell’istituto creando un processo di miscelazione di persone diverse, chiamato “diluizione” (verdunning). L’esperimento di Muller è stato concluso dopo quattro anni. Durante la nostra residenza abbiamo messo in discussione le possibilità di diluizione oggi al Willem Arntsz Hoeve, in relazione alla chiusura dell’istituto nei prossimi anni”.

Curatore per l’arte contemporanea al Kunstmuseum St. Gallen, Lorenzo Benedetti è stato direttore del De Appel Arts Centre ad Amsterdam dal 2014 e alla Vleeshal di Middelburg dal 2008, ha curato il Padiglione Olandese alla 55ma edizione della Biennale di Venezia nel 2013
