Post-Butt

The power of the image
Melani de Luca


OH MY GOD, LOOK AT HER BUTT!

Post-Butt analyses the virality of images in our mediated society. More rounded, it is a case study around the image of female butts, bootys, and behinds, and their influence in media, society and art. The butt is the protagonist of mass-mediated cullture, it is the democratic sex organ par excellence. The phenomenon of bootyfication exists in many contexts, as varied as the exploitation of the body in colonialism to 90s hiphop culture. Post-Butt goes through different periods in time and place, to analyse the political meaning of the usage of the image of the female buttocks. Then, it discusses the role of the booty in varied cultural expressions such as film, Internet art, music videos, dance and plastic surgery. Deep inside, Post-butt aims to reflect on how our society is conditioned by viral images, that do not only exist in the digital context, but have deep consequences on our physical world as well.

On drawing

Marcel and Simon van Eeden


Opening May 27th

The subtitled drawings of Marcel van Eeden are often delivered as visual novels within which fictional characters walk through parallel narratives. His images are particular in their literary rhythm and poetic tone as they often touch upon the grit of modernisation. Simon van Eeden, his son, has seen all this work come to life and leave the house: he’s witnessed all the writing and drawing his father ever created from behind his drawing table.

the Ghost of Weaving

- considering life’s productive patterns through the work of handcraft masters operating at the edge of abstraction
Elisa van Joolen, Esther Stocker, Freek Lomme, Hansje van Halem, Har Sanders, Koen Taselaar, Maria Hedlund, Sigrid Calon, Timon van der Hijden


’Betraktelse’ (2000), by Maria Hedlund

Opening April 15, 15:00

Featuring Elisa van Joolen, Esther Stocker, Freek Lomme, Hansje van Halem/Tracy Widdess, Har Sanders, Koen TaselaarMaria Hedlund, Sigrid Calon, Timon van der Hijden


The textures of our culture are reflected within the patterns we produce. Sometimes the surface that hosts the pattern is more slippery than imagined, or the pattern appears to have been too unstable in the first place. As the ruler is held exclusively in the hands of man, why then is the pattern so tempting and why do we give into it time and time again? Extra more, as productive mastery is channelled through ever more abstract processes, digital tools and semi-finished particles, don’t we lose touch with the fundamentals of the pattern produced?
