After an exhibition on an ice rink (ON ICE) and the most particular wellness festival ENTER THROUGH THE VOID, EXIT THROUGH THE GIFTSHOP, Nein is back. Now at your home. With an online arts festival called DIAH (Do It At Home).
Over 30 artists are invited to make an online engagement with an audience from home, in search of a different kind of festival experience. By means of three open formats, Stories, Instructions and Mixtapes, Nein challenged these artists to step outside their comfort zone. Departing from their practice they share stories, music and exciting instructions for activities to experience at home. This can be done indoors or outdoors, alone or with roommates. In this way, a multitude of forms are created to see, hear and feel. You become the director of your own festival.

And it doesn't stop here, we also ask you as an audience to share photos or videos while you listen, perform, share, experience the work. In this way you return your missed appreciation, as a kind of digital form of applause.
The idea for DIAH is a follow-up to the Print at home coloring book by artists in times of corona, a project that originated during the first lockdown, in which 100 artists designed an image to print and color at home. This was warmly received and widely supported and disseminated by participating artists as well as museums and the press.
