Martin Helm, Sonja van der Burg, Let Bijkersma 1986

Nouveau Nihilism became acutely aware of its existence through the collaboration of the artists Let Bijkersma, Martin Helm and Sonja van der Burg.Its manifestations in space/time are but a paper trail.Some examples are given on this site.A manifesto was produced and subsequently eaten. Visitors to the event were invited to join in the feast…Its inception led to its inevitable, irrefutable and immediate conclusion:

Nothing is real.

Nouveau Nihilism is an ongoing process, but you will not find it when you look for it.Yet it is always there, subtly building in strength, like an underground earthquake, blending in with nature.

Such is its destiny.
