La Société Anonyme
La Société Anonyme is an artist collective born from the ashes of the Dutch 2013 funding cuts to the arts. An avant-garde art collective with a corporate twist après la lettre, La Société Anonyme launched its first product in July 2012: The SKOR Codex, a digital archive of public art in the form of printed book. The book was printed in eight copies that are now available for viewing in libraries and collections (Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam, Royal Library in The Hague, Open Data Initiative in London, State Library Victoria in Melbourne, Bibliothèque nationale de France in Paris, SFMOMA Library in San Francisco, and Art Library of The National Art Center in Tokyo). It has been installed in exhibitions on several occasions. Adopting an experimental model of artistic corporation, La Société Anonyme responds to the commodification of culture by searching for alternative ways to make, promote and sustain art. La Société Anonyme is represented by Dušan Barok, Danny van der Kleij, Aymeric Mansoux, and Marloes de Valk.
