Photo Exhibition: Gender Free Zone
For the duration of the One World Week we will show in Orion the Photo Exhibition: Gender Free Zone.
How do you define gender? Is it the state of being male or female typically used with reference to social and cultural differences rather than biological ones, is gender black and white, a binary or is it even more diverse then we can image.
The project Gender Free Zone from the photographer Petra van Velzen is about gender diversity. She believes that gender isn’t a binary –men/women – but a spectrum with endless variations. The exposition shows portraits of people with both male and female characteristics. Gender Free Zone shows the many forms that the gender spectrum has and the beauty of it.
7 Houses Exhibition
For the duration of the One World Week we will show in Forum on stage the exhibition 7 houses, an interactive exhibition about "where do you feel at home?", made by MakeFactory. The expo consists of 7 houses. Each house is a surprise, filled with moving images, drawings or sounds. You are invited to enter the houses and think about the question 'where do I feel at home?' and 'how do I feel at home being away from it?'. The exhibition invites you to wonder about differences in cultures; what do you find crazy and what do you think is normal?
On Thursday April 5 at 20:00-21:30 in Impulse there will be an accompanying lecture to this exhibition telling the story of 'Makefactory on tour’. Makefactory is a nomadic cultural working space, tha ttraveled the world between summer 2014 and summer 2015. As cultural nomads MakeFactory creates cultural movement on the spot with and for the people, inviting everyone to join and connect. By traveling this way we research new ways of education, new ways of tourism and new ways of living a life on ’the move’.
