Free entry

Drawing from a phrase in Alice in Wonderland, this exhibition explores players and playfulness in contemporary photography. The curator Hester Keijser has chosen twelve artists because of the elaborated playfulness in their work or their willingness to accept challenges that expand their creative capacity.

Two teams (one Swiss and the other Dutch) have been formed with six players on each. The exhibition features a selection of videos by Roman Signer that mark the midpoint of the playing field. The visitors will be able to place an un-vote for the un-winning team, but without knowing for which team they are casting their un-vote.

The exhibition will present a selection of videos, installation works, a conceptual piece, a site-specific assemblage, a spoken word performance, stop-motion videos, anamorphic prints and photo-based embroideries, as well as experimental Polaroid prints based children´s colouring tools.

Thank you! You’ve reached the end. Now stop.
