On Tuesday 14 June, 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. After an introduction you will dive into the world of French artist, writer and activist Claude Cahun in the exhibition 'Claude Cahun. Under the Skin'. 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.
The exhibition Claude Cahun. Under the skin features over sixty photographs, photomontages, publications and archive material of this versatile artist. The common thread of the exhibition is formed by important themes from Cahun’s turbulent life: the exploration of different (gender) roles and identities, her involvement in the Paris avant-garde and experimental theatrical companies, her acts of resistance during the Second World War, and her clear views on the world around her.
KunstKoppels, an inspiring day with extraordinary meetings.
