Bob Lens

Bob Lens (The Hague, NL, 1939)
Bob Lens is a Dutch artist whose practice includes a wide range of mediums such as drawing, painting, photography, video and sound. Texts and visuals are combined resulting in individual pieces of work, series and small editions. In 1981 Bob Lens proclaimed his manifesto at the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, which could also be read a year later. He printed his principles over a plastic bag of the Gemeentemuseum and covered the logo/image on the bag with it. Lens exhibited parts of his bag series at the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, Franklin Furnace in New York and the Verbeke Foundation in Belgium.
