Milk Expo Opening: The essence of self expression

Milk Solo Expositie curated by Milk Made


Please note: this event has already taken place

    Discover the unique approach to identity in Yasemin Demirözcan's photography. Everyone is different, and it's important to have the room to express oneself. For many, their hair is a significant tool for self-discovery, allowing them to present themselves authentically without constraint. This series of portraits shows how hair and queer identities intersect, while simultaneously critiquing the stereotype that there's only one way to 'look queer'. The series emphasizes the visibility of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) individuals, as these perspectives often remain underrepresented in the visual representation of self-expression and style.

    This program is organized by Milk Made, the youth division of the Melkweg. Learn more at melkweg.nl/milkmade. The lineup is curated by Sharon Ngu-Nji.

    This program is made possible by Fonds21 and Cultuurfonds.
