Everything New Under the Sun
Hosted by: Queer Leiden University
Students from Queer Leiden University and Royal Academy of Art The Hague come together to present art and queer theory in an ongoing exhibition and special events.
Their first edition will center queer world-making and life lived accross definitions, with an emphasis on embracing the ambiguous, the anti-rigid, the plural.
“By challenging the cyclicity and predictability of life represented by the biblical phrase “There is nothing new under the sun” [Ecclesiastes 1:9], it plays with the idea that although individual lives may be a repetition of those that came before them, the LGBTQIA+ community is defined by ongoing discovery: it is in constant re-writing.”
More information about the exhibition, it’s opening times and ticket sale will follow soon.
Queer Leiden University is a collective that aims to support and bring together queer people in The Hague and beyond. By teaming up with queer students from the KABK, they want to strengthen the LGBTQIA+ community of The Hague and support young queer artists.
By symbolically bringing together the University’s theory and the Academy’s practice, they welcome creatives to combine visual and written, practical and theoretical creations to spark contemporary and relevant conversations on the experience of queer life.
The works may contain content that can be experienced as offensive and confronting. Visitor discretion is advised.
