After its long-awaited revamp, Kunstlinie Almere Flevoland re-opened its doors last September. Now standing as a creative hub that’s preparing to show seven new exhibition spaces, the transformation has enabled the museum to harbour all types of events, and serve as a meeting place for theatre, art, music and architecture.

As a celebration of its new space, KAF is currently hosting the Magical Mystery Tour, showcasing sixteen young Dutch artists. Among these exhibitors are creative duo (in art and in life) Jean Paul Paula and Florian Joahn. Together the stylist/muse and photographer present surrealist fashion photography at “the interface of art” in their joint exposé This. My Body.

Exploring our suggested development from sexuality into hypersexuality, the pair investigates—with their respective disciplines—the meaning, effects and outcome of our increased sexual interests. Presenting fashion photography with a critical twist, they question: “Does the beauty of a man change if he wears a dress? What happens to social patterns when tradition fades and nothing seems obvious anymore?”

With a daring attitude, these two creatives uproot conventional concepts of beauty and delve into the depths of (hyper)sexuality.
