Gemaal op Zuid



GHOST presents Sesamstraat in Gemaal op Zuid, the arts and neighborhood common of Rotterdam Zuid. Featuring the work of José Aramburo, Toon Fibbe & Laura Wiedijk, Kayije Kagame, Momu & No Es, Santiago Monge, Scott Pyle, Jay Tan & Geo Wyeth (with Serena Lee, Vala Sigþrúðar Jónsdóttir and Dieuwertje Hehewerth), Daniel TuomeyJan Verwoert and an exhibition text by Cédric Fauq.

The title, Sesame Street™ in Dutch, is chosen because the politics, aesthetics and mechanics of the TV Show formed the initial foundation for the exhibition. Whilst some specific references and characters can be found within the exhibition, so can Jean Genet, Eye-Guy, and a pack of wolves, concerns broaden from puppetry and doubling to the impossibility of representation and homogenization of difference.

The exhibition will open November 9th in conjunction with South Explorer, and will run until November 16th.

GHOST is a three person facilitative entity based in Rotterdam. Together, under this cipher, GHOST is interested in experimental forms of assistance, collaboration, authorship and exhibition making.
