Tattoos, piercings and make-up are all ways of adorning our body that have become part of our daily life. The body and the skin especially is like a canvas, which we use to express who we are, to beautify ourselves, to be part of a group or to change our appearance. It is an important way of expressing our identity.
In addition to the socially accepted body adornments, this exhibition also takes a closer look at more extreme forms of body modification, such as scarring, branding and even body engineering. Whereas people with such body adornments are often pigeon-holed, the MAS takes an open-handed approach to this subject.
