Extraordinary meetings


On Tuesday 2 November, Kunsthal Rotterdam is organizing another edition of 'KunstKoppels' (ArtCouples). During KunstKoppels you will meet someone in the Kunsthal who is completely new and unknown to you. Someone from another generation, or with a different background or lifestyle. This edition is dedicated to the exhibition Deep in Vogue. Celebrating Ballroom Culture. After an introduction you will visit the exhibition as KunstKoppel, and together you will discover the expressive power of ballroom culture. KunstKoppels is organized in cooperation with Rotterdam Heroes, a youth project of Unie Van Vrijwilligers Rotterdam (UVV). The main language during this event is Dutch.

Deep in Vogue celebrates ballroom culture and provides the context for a subculture that is shaped by and for black and brown queer and trans people. Through photography, video installations, and a number of fashion items, the exhibition showcases the community, codes, and expressive power of ballroom – focusing on its roots and the continuing need to celebrate each other in a society that so often fails to do so.
