Exhibition

The Hoodie

TEMPORARILY CLOSED

Exhibition

01 Dec 2019 — 23 Aug 2020

This exhibition considers the role of a fashion garment as a socio-political carrier. The hoodie is a staple of contemporary dress, hyped as a trend and a must-have item; but elsewhere it is also a topic of moral panic, banned by certain institutions and dissected by the media as an emblem of inequality, crime or deviancy.Curated by writer and curator Lou Stoppard.

Where’s Elzas?

A data challenge for self-isolating globetrotters

Wed 27 May 2020, 20:00 — 21:00

Hermine Giefing-Elzas loved travelling with her husband Abraham Elzas (architect of the Lekstraat Synagogue in Amsterdam and – with Marcel Breuer – designer of De Bijenkorf department store in Rotterdam). Their holiday snaps, invariably featuring Hermine, take us on tour with them. We don’t know a lot about their trips, but the photos reveal how extensively they travelled in the second half of the 20th century. Now, we are inviting you to help us – from your home – to find out where Hermine is.

For the Record: Urban Imaginaries

Live radio/video broadcast with Operator

Thu 11 Jun 2020, 19:30 — 20:30

Music videos often expose the realities of local communities, circulating them across platforms and borders. Under lockdown and self-isolation, music video formats have actually enabled forms of solidarity and collectivity across different countries. This online event will look at how local realities and changing notions of public space are represented in music videos. Speakers will also reflect on how fans and communities, held together by music, are responding to the current situation, and what modes of collaboration are emerging during social distancing.
