The exhibition MYBODY. COM reflects on the body as a battlefield of power structures. It exhibits the human body as a map, leading the way through historical events, rulers and market systems. The exhibition not only looks at how political structures of the past affect the bodies of those who live and work today. It also focuses on the future in order to visualize the role assigned to the body in a world that is becoming more and more analytical, abstract and mainly digital.

The exhibition is accompanied by an extensive context programme developed in collaboration with various gyms in The Hague. Keep an eye on the agenda for more information.

Partners: Koninklijke Academie voor Beeldende Kunsten (KABK), Hidden Gym, Fit For Free and Mister Motley.
