E-Witness, Women and War
When looking at the role of women in history we often see women working on the background; widows, orphans, but also victims of (sexual) violence. From the rape of the Sabine women, the Korean and Indonesian ‘comfort women’, the kidnapped school girls of Boko Haram, to the IS women. Yet, women also have been fighters and heroes; at times they might also be instrumental in perpetuating war.
E-Witness aims to revisit and reflect on the role of women in war. Korean art group Art Ze-An departs from their historical perspective, the Korea war. The Dutch artists in the show focus on more recent events. With: Min Cheolhong, Heo Eunyoung, Shim Jung-ah, Chung Kyungmi, Ha Min-su, Han SoongHun, Hwang Seonyoung, Kim Suhyang, Shin Young-Seong, Jessy Rahman and Theater of Wrong Decisions.
Opening hours: Wednesday until Sunday

See what you know
“See what you know” refereert naar het weten dat voortkomt uit het kijken. Het intuďtieve maken is een van de uitgangspunten van het reizende kunstenaarscollectief The Act of Painting. In het maken zit het weten. Je bent de ruimte die je schildert en je bent de actie die je maakt in het beeld.
Opening: Friday 12 October, 2018 at 7 pm
Upcoming: 'Talking with Hands', the first exhibition of the new season 2018-2019. As part of our international cooperations, this exchange project between Quartair Contemporary Art Initiatives and Fusion Art Gallery / Inaudita (Turin) will bring eight artists from Italy to The Hague, and later in November, ten artists from Quartair will travel and exhibit in Turin.
Review by Kees Koomen on: chmkoome.wordpress.com
Artists - Talking with Hands - The Hague:
The hand of the human may be distinguished by the precision grip; however, the humanity of the hand, Heidegger argued, lies in its possession by the word. ‘Man does not “have” hands, but the hand holds the essence of man, because the word as the essential realm of the hand is the ground of the essence of man’. Thus language holds the hand, and the hand holds man.

Today we constantly experience a changing social, and urban landscape in which temporality is the norm, objects are made to be replaced instead of to last.
Fresh Dough is an exhibition where four young artists based in The Hague react to this notion of temporality through sculptural ephemerality and a reaction to space.
Four diverse approaches to sculpture and site-specificity will be presented in Quartair to explore the temporality in contemporary sculpture and perhaps its very ephemeral nature.

GUEST AT QUARTAIR
The evening will begin with a public discussion between Engqvist and curator/educator Clare Butcher on the roles of curators and artists, on exhibiting artistic research, and on the place of exhibitions within the art school context.
The exhibition follows on from an earlier event held at STROOM, Den Haag on February 9 with artist Marysia Lewandowska. Both events focus, in different ways, on issues related to the modes and contexts of artistic distribution.
The exhibition will also be open on Saturday 17 February, from 13.00 - 16.00.
