MY PRACTICE, MY POLITICS
viale Abruzzi 42
The Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK) presents My Practice, My Politics - an exhibition with selected works by 20 recent bachelor and master KABK graduates and students from the Fine Arts and Design disciplines.
“The personal is political. Whether explicit or implicit, there is an embedded political dimension to everything we do. My Practice, My Politics explores how art, too, is inherently political. The exhibition aims to expand our ideas on political modes of expression. Through a wide array of artistic practices, the presentation conveys manifestations, interfaces and exchanges between the individual and the societal.
My Practice, My Politics portrays the way in which artists and designers capture their views on society through the subject matter they explore, the language and tools they employ, the aesthetics they manifest, and the communities they engage.”
The KABK has invited curators Saskia van Stein and Agata Jaworska to make a selection of work by recent bachelor and master KABK graduates and students from the Fine Arts and Design disciplines.
The exhibition concept is supervised by Roosje Klap and Niels Schrader co-heads of the bachelor Graphic Design and master Non-Linear Narrative at the Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK).
