What is Fear Artists

Eric Peter

Eric Peter is an artist and writer, based in The Netherlands. His practice revolves around language, in a deconstruction of the normative in history-making and social paradigms. Language here, is to be read in its broadest sense; from the speech apparatus and bodily language, to vocabularies, (mis)spellings and gobbledygook. Projects can entail installations, discussions, workshops, performances, and video or text works̶through the interweaving of collective and particular voices with very personal experiences, Peter critically approaches his projects. Currently, ‘Economy as Intimacy‘, a larger project in which Peter aims at reading late capitalism through intimacies, using poetry as a medium of speculation, is his main focus. The project has culminated in a multitude of publications, reading groups, lectures, and, more recently, choreopoems. He holds a BFA in Fine Arts from the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, and an MA in Art Praxis at the Dutch Art Institute.
