Whip it up! Cemeti Art House and 25 years of contemporary art

Art is a foreign country, discovers Winterson one cold December day in Amsterdam.1 The place of discovery, though, is of no signifi cance; it could very well have been in Manchester, or Bandung. The work of art she saw made her pause, ponder and revisit it. And because the language of art is not our mother-tongue, we have to engage with artworks to learn to passionately appreciate works of art – a part of this learning process is that we slowly learn to diff erentiate and become able to off er reasons beyond merely liking this, but not that, particular work of art.
