Animated films, comic strips and cartoons…. these are rarely exhibited in a museum for contemporary art. However in the ‘Black or White’ exhibition at the Van Abbemuseum they play the main role in combination with drawings and video installations. ‘Black or White flirts’ with what is politically incorrect. It aims to provoke visitors to reflect upon their own behavior and its interrelation with social conventions by exhibiting politically engaged art. Black or White provides an overview of different forms of sequential art: from animated films and video installations to drawings and comic strips.
The exhibition includes works by Michael J. Baers, Sue Coe, Robert Crumb, Emma De Swaef and Marc James Roels, Piotr Duma?a, Extrastruggle, Philippe Grammaticopoulos, Greg Irons and Tom Veitch, Phil Mulloy, Prabhakar Pachpute, Dan Perjovschi, Peter Pontiac, and Ton Smits. The installation The Refusal of Time by William Kentridge (2012), one of the favorites of the public at dOCUMENTA13 last year in Kassel, is exhibited in the Studio.
