Contemporary artist Daan Samson offers his audience a glimpse of a private Christmas get-together. The video shows how a select number of names from the international art world are immersed in the warm atmosphere of a luxurious Christmas celebration;
- Barbara Visser,
- Jan De Cock,
- Iris van Dongen
- Erik van Lieshout.
But isn't Daan Samson mainly fooling himself here? The artist has arbitrarily tracked down a number of individuals with the exact same names as his successful colleagues and has invited these people as his guests for Christmas. When Daan Samson starts handing out a large number of tasteful presents, everything seems just as hunky-dory as in the famous Wham! video clip.
