Jocelyn Lee at ‘Der nackte Körper – Eine Frage der Perspektive’ – Museum Kurhaus / Kleve
November 26, 2021
From the 26th of November till the 16th of January of 2022, Museum Kurhaus / Kleve will feature Jocelyn Lee and her work ´Jane and the Crashing Wave’ as part of their ‘Der nackte Körper – Eine Frage der Perspektive’ group show.
The exhibition “The Naked Body – A Question of Perspective (translated)” is a cooperation project between the Museum Kurhaus Kleve and the social science bachelor’s degree “Gender and Diversity” at the Rhein-Waal University of Applied Sciences. As young curators, students of the social science-oriented Gender and Diversity Studies developed the exhibition along three thematic complexes: The artistic representation, but also the break with the ideals of the naked body move into focus. The focus is on works of art that present nudity in a positive and self-empowering way. Decolonial perspectives (overcoming racist ascriptions) on the naked body in art are opened up. The exhibition thus stands for the struggle for a different, emancipatory narrative with a view to nudity.
On display are works from the collection of the Museum Kurhaus Kleve, thematically supplemented by loans as well as artistic works created especially for the exhibition by students of the “Information and Communication Design” course at the Rhein-Waal University of Applied Sciences, which is under the direction of the artist and photographer Kirsten Becken have arisen. The spectrum of works of art on display includes sculptures, paintings, drawings, graphics, photography, but also films and videos, and ranges from the 16th century to the present day.
