26 May - 26 July: exhibition PHALLUS. Norm & Form (university museum)
|Where:||University Museum Groningen|
The exhibition PHALLUS. Norm & Form , developed by GUM (Ghent University Museum), takes the visitor on a journey through our ideas on sex, gender, science, norms and values. The exhibition is focussing on the male member. Is that putting it on a pedestal? Maybe - but only so that it can also be pulled down. One thing is sure: PHALLUS. Norm & Form is smashing all sorts of stereotypes.
The exhibition at the University Museum Groningen uses the concept as well as the objects from the GUM. Many of the artists and art works that were on show in Ghent, are also on show in Groningen. There are works by Sofie Muller, Maria Fernanda Cardoso, Murielle Scherre, David Hockney, Man Ray and Vajinsky. Next to the exhibition, visitors can also participate in a public activities programme, put together by experts of the University of Groningen, UMCG, Rutgers, Women INC, COC Groningen and Drenthe.
