Iliada Charalambous (DAI, 2023) is delighted to invite you/us to an exhibition at Stroom: "Positions: Elsewheres" where the work of five The Hague-based artists is presented. It gives a broad overview of contemporary art in the city today. The show features incredible sculptures, videos and installations by Andrius Arutiunian, Louis Braddock Clarke and Zuza Zgierska, Anastastija (Nastija) Kiake, Narges Mohammadi and Iliada Charalambous herself. The Hague is a city characterised by its relation to elsewheres. The exhibition moves through various scales of inquiry, starting from the local engagement of people with their neighbours, before moving on to the changing character of the city through the gentrification of working-class neighbourhoods. At a wider angle, the exhibition looks to The Hague as a site of international weapons trade and a place from where much of the EU border is governed, before arriving at the largest scale – outer space – in the form the pieces of rock located in this very city that haven’t come from this planet at all. As a site of political power,The Hague legislates for and governs a nation. As a site of industry, it produces and maintains systems that determine the boundaries of Europe. And as a site of international law, it attempts to provide justice on the global stage. The works in the exhibition depart from a look at this internationalism, through which much of The Hague’s identity as a city is determined by how it governs the systems and relations in other places, and how those elsewheres affect the city in turn. Till 02.07.2023.

Defiant Muses ~ Delphine Seyrig and the Feminist Video Collectives of 1970s and 1980s France. Focusing on the emergence of video collectives in the 1970s, this exhibition (curated by Nataša Petrešin-Bachelez and Giovanna Zapperi and running till May 7, 2023) proposes to reconsider the history of the feminist movement in France through a set of media practices and looks at a network of creative alliances that emerged in a time of political turmoil and that were relevant far beyond France. Seyrig as well as actress and friend Jane Fonda, cinematographer and filmmaker Babette Mangolte, poet and painter Etel Adnan, artist, author and activist Kate Millett, or writer and philosopher Simone de Beauvoir appear as knitting nodes of a wider, plural, transnational fabric. Videos, films, artworks, costumes, photographs and archival documents are associated within sections that convey the multiple political concerns that the feminist movement was raising at this precise historical moment. The total of seven exhibition areas were conceived under the following titles: Undoing the Diva; Feminist Media Appropriation; Countering Normativity; Disobedient Practices; Transnational Struggles; Research Into The Anti-Psychiatry Movement; An Unfinished History. The topics negotiated therein resonate with a set of problems concerning art and politics today, as feminists keep on building alliances, rise against the film industry’s structural sexism, and challenge normative gender roles. Seyrig’s troubled positions in-between aesthetics (cinema, video) and work (profession, industry) are marked by a continuum between the actress and the activist thus reminding of the ongoing significance of the 1970s feminist slogan: “the personal is political.”
