Das Banale Ding was an Amsterdam artist collective founded in 2010 by Adrian Brun, Annegien van Doorn, Bas Hendrikx, Marloes van Doorn and Nikos Doulas. Sharp and with a sense of humor, they redefined reality and reclaimed imagination with objects from our daily life. Everyday objects were placed in different contexts or photographed in specific manners to unleash them from their original meaning. By doing so, Das Banale Ding created new realities that were fascinating and slightly absurd. They have since been disbanded, but Das Banale Ding’s spirit lives on in humor of the quotidian absurd.
