'End Time' at Gabber Nation 2.0 during Intersections Art Rotterdam 2017

'End Time' by Boris Postma
Year: 2017
Size: 240 x 180 cm
Materials: Laserprint on blue back paper, wheat paste

Having visited the historical sites of Rotterdam’s gabber culture, Boris Postma presents a photo installation that calls upon the changing character of Rotterdam and its gabber scene. Places which once functioned as a pilgrimage for gabbers, now seem desolate and alienating. Combined with the aesthetic of torn down poster- and flyer walls Postma draws on the discrepancy that defined gabber culture, being both rough and sinister, and warm and inviting.
