Following the murder of George Floyd by police officers, demonstrations across the U.S. and beyond ignite against racism and police brutality, at times met with less than magnanimous authority.
Marres, House for Contemporary Culture, is an internationally operating “presentatie-instelling” located at Maastricht. The institution researches new developments in contemporary visual art and presents its findings to a broad audience by means of exhibitions, research programs, and public events. It does so while putting emphasis on sensory development, the language of the body and immersive sceneries. Marres works together with visual artists, designers, musicians, perfumers, scientists, and chefs to create works of art and to research new artistic practices. Besides this, Marres puts a lot of time and effort in young talents.
