Upcoming exhibition

Because the Night


Going out, diving into the dancing crowd, escaping the daily grind for a few brief hours with self-indulgent abandon; clubs are places where subcultures form, the marginalised can feel at home, and secret identities can be lived out. Different (music) scenes unite the social and political attitudes of those who create them and those who celebrate them. This exhibition and the accompanying magazine are dedicated to these special hours of the night. Photographic works by Bieke Depoorter, Georg Gatsas, Thembinkosi Hlatshwayo, Bárbara Wagner and Benjamin de Burca and Tobias Zielony showcase the multi-facetted world of clubbing in various countries, reflecting on their different cultural mores and latest aesthetics.
