Last summer I was part of the Gabber Nation exhibition in Kunsthuis Syb as invited by Henrike Naumann. In Gabber Nation we explored the Gabber subculture in the rural parts of the Netherlands, Friesland to be more precise. Some of the themes explored were the subject of teenage angst, the urge for destruction in all of us and the apocalyptic prophecy of Hardcore rave music.

Gabber Nation has been covered by Metropolis M, Leeuwarder Courant, i-D, Noisey, read an in depth review over here.
