The body as a battlefield of power structures.

The exhibition MYBODY.COM reflects on the body as a battlefield of power structures. To what extent does physical freedom exist within systems such as capitalism, fascism, communism, (post)colonialism and present-day neoliberalism? Bodies are like maps, mentally charged with meaning and history. On the outside they show visible traces of prosperity or poverty, of stress, oppression or excellence. Is the body private property or a marketable product for economic purposes? Or a pawn that is played on the chessboard of great rulers?
MYBODY.COM is an international group exhibition about the body as a portal, product and projection of larger political structures.
The exhibition is accompanied by an extensive context program developed in collaboration with various gyms in The Hague. Keep an eye on the agenda for more information.
Partners: Koninklijke Academie voor Beeldende Kunsten (KABK), Hidden Gym, Fit For Free and Mister Motley.
