#cute. Islands of Happiness?

9/10/2020-10/1/2021

With more than five hundred million posts on Instagram alone, #cute is one of the most popular hashtags ever. Cute can mean dainty, sweet, or twee, and we come across it in all aspects of life. Animal babies, unicorns, rabbit ears—cuteness is closely related to consumer culture and has not only taken social media by storm, but also product design, advertising, robotics, and art.

THE KEBAB HELIX
AND OTHER FAST FOOD FANTASIES

9/10/2020–10/1/2021

The Inter Media Art Institute presents fast food fantasies, in which contradictory values of capitalist society clash – rationality and functionality, overindulgence and convenience. Ever since the 1980s video makers have been exploring these tensions by appropriating the iconography of multinational corporations, questioning the logic of the franchise system, criticizing the labor conditions of the foodservice industry, denouncing the mass production of food, and confessing the sin of gluttony. Their journey takes them from a kebab-shop in Rotterdam to a London burger restaurant, and further to a drive-through in Los Angeles.
