The Future Body

The Future Body was a collaboration between KABK Fine Arts, NEST – Ruimte voor Kunst and Fit for Free (location Loosduinseweg Den Haag), taking place in the autumn of 2019.

Connected to the NEST-exhibition the students of the Fine Arts department at the KABK were invited to participate in a workshop under the supervision and close engagement of artist Tereza Ruller, in close contact with Clara Ronsdorf (NEST project coordinator). The workshop entitled The Future Body was looking into body-production of today, exploring questions like body-improvement and the body’s role in a steadily more virtual/visual society.

Apart from lectures, discussions and readings the workshop served as a platform from which students of the KABK Fine Art launched short videos dealing with the body as produced, of which some were chosen to be shown in Fit For Free.

The project was made possible through Heske ten Cate, Artistic Director Nest, Wilma Dumay, manager Fit For Free (location Loosduinseweg) and The Fine Arts department at the KABK.

Participating Fine Arts students:

Maya Bahner
Rio Drop
Safae Gounane
Ryan Lim Zi
Alexandra Louka
Christian Roncea
Lui Wolstencroft

Work by students Ryan Lim Zi, Christian Roncea and Lui Wolstencroft has been selected to be screened at Fit For Free (location Loosduinseweg, Den Haag) until 1 December 2019.
