Currents #6 presents the work of 17 emerging artists who recently graduated from Belgian, Dutch and German academies. This year’s theme Good Intentions, brings together personal stories and political statements dealing with identity, youth and cultural traditions. From twerking to vlogging children, from the French Revolution to drone warfare and from pickling chestnuts to selling your soul for ice cream: Good Intentions has it all. The exhibition is curated by Marian Cousijn, Anne Ruygt and Bertan Selim.

Many of the selected artists moved to the Euregion from different parts of the world. Through their work they reflect on society and contemplate belonging in today’s established socio-political order. The artists treat subjects ranging from happiness to alienation; from controversial histories to the perversity of the internet. Their works question morality and focus on the tension that occurs between cultural appropriation, conformism and individualism. Good Intentions combines photography, video, installation, performance, print and sculpture. Centering on the artists’ personal perspectives and experiences, the exhibition illustrates the complexity of self-definition in today’s world.

Currents
Currents #6: Good Intentions is the sixth edition of the series titled Currents. For this edition Z33 Hasselt joins Marres Maastricht as a structural partner. With Currents they act as a platform for up-and-coming artists and curators to contribute to an international infrastructure for talent development.

Support
The exhibition is a co-production of Marres and Z33. Good Intentions is made possible with the support of Grensverleggers, FLACC and Mondriaan Fund—the public cultural funding organization focusing on visual arts and cultural heritage.

Marres receives structural support from the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science, the Municipality of Maastricht and the Province of Limburg.
