Enclave 7 : Enclave Lab | Unfiltered

Aug 29, 2017
25 August – 9 September

How do people represent themselves? How do they feel when they are being objectified? How does it feel to be subjected to an indefatigable gaze?

In our current society, dominated by social media – where we document all our exciting activities and strive to gain the most likes –  we are constantly obsessed with finding ways to present ourselves in the best possible light or literally in the best possible filter.

Is it then still possible for our bodies to be ‘unfiltered’?

UNFILTERED is a performative exhibition that examines these questions over the course of three durational performances. Each week will display a different episode, a different performative installation.

Curated by Riet Timmerman
