Putin's worst nightmare - Roee Rosen
Location: Plaatsmaker, Gruttersdijk 12 in Utrecht.
On invitation by Utrecht artist Peter van der Horst and the Plaatsmaker organisation IMPAKT will present an informal mini-exhibition of the work Vladimir’s Night by Israeli artist Roee Rosen.
Vladimir’s Night written by the fictional paranoiac Russian immigrant Maxim Komar-Myshkin, looks like a children book at a first glance, but turns gory as it pursues its political agenda against Vladimir Putin by having animated objects assault the Russian leader.
Vladimir’s Night is part of “Uitgelicht”, an informal exhibition in the office space of Plaatsmaker, an organization that provides studio and office spaces for Utrecht artists and art-organizations. The concept of the exhibition is that a selection of Utrecht artists that have their studio in a space provided by Plaatsmaker were invited to highlight another Utrecht artists and invite them to exhibit in “Uitgelicht”. Utrecht artist Peter van der Horst selected IMPAKT and IMPAKT, in agreement with Roee Rosen, decided to exhibited Vladimir’s Night, a work that has been exhibited before, at IMPAKT as part of the exhibition Roee Rosen, Poetry and Catharsis from 19 April to 26 May, 2019.
More information on Vladimir’s Night and Roee Rosen can be found here. Others artists exhibiting in UITGELICHT are Karen Vennik, Britt Dorenbosch, Robin Meyer, Marin Hondebrink en Eline Peek.
The exhibition will open on Friday 23 September at 17.00.

Roee Rosen― Artist
Israeli artist, filmmaker and writer Roee Rosen works in video, theater, music, paintings and texts. He provocatively links politics to erotica, physical intimacy, trauma and identity. In Rosen’s complex world, fact and fiction are enmeshed through both real and fictive characters, and through surprising, sometimes bizarre, scenarios.
