Re-dress the Body

Everyone has one: a body. We humans dress and cherish our bodies every day, sometimes with and sometimes without garments. Our body releases the first glimpse of our identity.

But how is the body experienced? What parts of the body are we proud of? And are there also parts that make us insecure?

We will test this with ‘Re-dress the Body’, a social experiment in Het Oude Noorden! By inviting people to answer two simple questions, we collect data and provide insight into the experience of the body. Do we share common pride and insecurities with each other? Can we say that the body is something that unites us all?
