Moving in Stasis (Het Nieuwe Instituut, 2020)

What do laundry and design exhibitions have in common?

This question, which could work as the set-up of a joke, is the starting point of ‘Dirty Linen’. This docusoap follows The Ironing Board on a journey to self-discovery while documenting the lives of their fellow master graduates during the exhibition ‘Moving in Stasis’ at Het Niuewe Instituut. Together they explore the challenges of keeping up with laundry while preparing their graduation show.

Using the laundry as an entering point, ‘Dirty Linen’ is a reflection about exhibitions and what it takes for creatives to present (or conceal parts of) their work in front of others.
