ANGRY focuses on the interpretation of the angry and obstinate adolescents. Protest, resistance and [radical] action in our society is shown from three different aspects: by the youth themselves, by the media and through the interpretation of artists and photographers.
What is radicalization? Who is radical and who says so? Is radicalization a threat to our society?
In the exhibition ANGRY radicalism is shown from three different perspectives: by young people, by the media and through the eyes of artists. Among these artists are important [inter]national photographers, and filmmakers: Rineke Dijkstra , Willie Doherty , Joel Sternfeld and Allan Sekula . A series of video portraits show various generations of [ex]radicals who talk about their motives.
“…uncompromising power and idealism of youth as a driving force for changes in our society…”
