Opening Modern Love exhibition
At IMPAKT & Centraal Museum
Location: Centraal Museum
Opening exhibition //
In our on-demand society, we increasingly deal with love, relationships and intimacy online. What is this doing to the way we meet, love each other – and break up? From Wednesday 3 November, the IMPAKT Festival 2021 will be dedicated entirely to Modern Love (or Love in the Age of Cold Intimacies). We hereby invite you to the opening of the festival and the accompanying exhibition.
Together with IMPAKT’s artistic director Arjon Dunnewind, guest curator Katerina Gregos, director of the National Museum of Contemporary Art in Athens, has created a loving exhibition and a stimulating festival programme with artists, philosophers, writers and researchers such as AA Bronson, Eva Illouz, Srećko Horvat, Dries Verhoeven, Melanie Bonajo, Duran Lantink, Mounir Samuel, Roanne van Voorst and many others.
