“Countercurrents” is a group project by students of the two-year master programme Photography & Society of the Royal Academy of Art The Hague.
On view at a former bunker, the project showcases in the three day event (24-26th June 2022) a collection of works by a dynamic group of image makers prompted by the dangerous effects that are connected to the presence of underwater munitions in our oceans. From this starting point each artist found their own topic. “Countercurrents” features a range of photographic and video installations, sculptures The featured artists challenge the status quo and (re)present alternatives on the negligence of the past, trauma, the hidden, the interconnections between us, others, as well as our planet. Their work challenges what photography can still do in current times and enlist themes of current reality, collective and individual memories, fictional narrative and metaphor.
As part of the programme, organized tours will guide visitors through the collective works in and around the bunker, which is the location of the offline exhibition. In this former part of the Atlantikwall, a series of talks and performances will be hosted and presented on our online exhibition ( the next day.
