Modern Body Festival is an intermedia initiative based in The Hague, founded and curated by artists. Our 2nd biennial edition is a 5-day event, taking place from November 29 to December 3 2016 in various re-purposed spaces in the city.

Modern Body Festival strives to examine the nature of our current existence through the perspective of the ‘modern body’. With this year’s theme: I/WE/THEY, we examine the social body, and explore the cultural borders of a globalized world.
