The exhibitions main focus is not so much on the physical aspects of the skin, but questions the importance of skin in a philosophical sense. Visitors investigate the value we give to skin colour and learn how wonderful our skin and body are. With contributions from Jalila Essaïdi, Berlinde De Bruyckere, Bart Hess, Eline Willemarck, Margi Geerlinks, Carla van de Puttelaar, Celio Braga, Elke Lutgerink and Renee Verhoeven, alternated with artworks from the Bonnefanten collection.

This exhibition is part of the ELEMENTS partnership in which contemporary art and cultural institutions in Dutch Limburg, Belgian Limburg, Liège and North Rhine-Westphalia program around an ‘element’ associated with the region.
