Counterbodies 20210630  16-46 Photographer Jan Arsenovic_ House Panther Media.jpg

Art Week Rotterdam
30.06 - 04.07 2021

De Achtertuin, Oostzeedijk 108 Rotterdam


After postponement of Art Week Rotterdam and our show with it, we came up with different show location.

“Counterbodies” was one of a kind pop-up exhibition showcasing works of 12 international female artists from the Netherlands, Italy, Germany and Crimea that share a common interest over the theme of the body.

The show featured both established artists and new voices in the contemporary art world, to offer the public both quality and freshness. 

This exhibition was a result of a dialogue between two curators who decided to collaborate and curate an art show together.

Marth Von Loeben and Vladimir Radujkov met and immediately recognised common grounds in their curatorial approach.

Their cooperation was organic and unforced, both conceptually and aesthetically.
