Body Art

The exhibition Body Art is back, by popular demand! Body Art is about body decorations in the broadest sense: from make-up and tattoos, to implants under the skin and surgical alterations.

Through the ages and across cultures. The key question is, why do people alter their bodies?

De tentoonstelling neemt de bezoeker mee langs zes mogelijke antwoorden op deze vraag. The exhibition features contemporary work by world-famous artist ORLAN and photographs by Krijn van Noordwijk, alongside personal accounts and leading items from our collection. Ook is er de mogelijkheid voor bezoekers een lichaam virtueel te veranderen. Hierdoor word je geprikkeld na te denken over waarom je zoiets zelf wel of niet zou doen.

Body Art laat zien dat ieder versierd mens, hoe extreem het ook lijkt, daarmee uiting geeft aan zijn of haar identiteit. En die behoefte zit onder ieders huid!
