20:30 - Performance / Oefeningen in de scenografie, Jivan van der Ende en Jurgen van Wesemael (In the exhibition space)

An important subject within Jivan van der Ende’s work is the way we look at bodies and the social and political implications of clothing (or the lack thereof). On Saturday 9 December Van der Ende will show a performance that is part of her ongoing project Muscular Growth (and me), based on the artist's personal studies on the topic of the extreme muscular body within patriarchal society. Since 2021 she collaborates with bodybuilders to create a dialogue between them and her queer self, both practices and identities. With this project she researches how capitalist society and its institutions view the body as a commodity.

This performance has been made possible with the support of Lichtekooi Artspace, M Leuven, Playground Festival, and HISK.

Duration: 20 min

Free admission - no registration needed.

We will meet again the following Saturday for another programme of talks and performances taking place during our finissage week-end, on December 16. We look forward to welcoming you!
