Every Saturday afternoon, you can join a 15-minute introductory lecture on the exhibition Ulay Was Here. This short lecture provides insight into his versatile oeuvre. Afterward, you can see the real works in the exhibition.
Ulay’s work exists on the intersection of photography and the conceptually-focused approaches of performance and body art. Polaroid photos, unique objects, and, in his case, often exceptionally large images, are fundamental to his oeuvre. This show pivots around four themes that amplify the contemporary relevance of Ulay’s work: his focus on performance and the performative aspects of photography; his research into gender identity and the body as a medium; his engagement with social and political issues and his relationship with Amsterdam.
