The poetics of thoughts – facilitated by the Mythological Institute
Ever wondered what thoughts would look like if they would leave our heads and materialize on
paper? The Mythological Institute warmly invites you to join the one on one performance “the
poetics of thoughts”, and offers you an opportunity to make a blueprint out of your thoughts. Come
and share your thoughts and stories with the Mythological Institute representative: Jolijn de Wolf.
The Mythological Institute is a processual art project, aiming to facilitate a non-hierarchical platform
for meeting, creation and knowledge exchange, using the institutional mechanisms in a slightly ironic
way to construct a bottom-up structure. The mythological Institute is a research platform shared
with the audience, to explore the meaning of present day myth-making and story-sharing.
Jolijn de Wolf (b. 1984) is an artist from the Netherlands. De Wolf makes performances, videos and
photographic etchings. In her work she examines the multipolar experience of being human. She
believes that myths and stories can have an emancipating function, empowering us to find our own
way in life. She is a BFA in 2009 at the Hogeschool van de Kunsten Utrecht, and has been working as
an independent artist.
Currently she is a student at the MA Live Art and Performance Studies in the Theatre Acadamy
Helsinki, Finland. In 2016 she founded the Mythological Institute.
