‘The rural is a multitude and it is dynamic, it can be attached or detached from a geography, it can be a mindset, a certain practice or a shared identity.’ Myvillages (2019)

Sliced rocks, frog butter spoons, bottled spirits and tractor parts are imported by artist collective Myvillages (Kathrin Böhm, Wapke Feenstra and Antje Schiffers) to reimagine the Gallery as a mental and physical space to access the rural, allowing multiple voices, experiences and expectations to meet each other.

Working internationally for more than fifteen years, Myvillages collaborate with rural communities in ways that reflect and engage local cultures, economies and resources. Negotiating differences and marginalised positions, the group proposes a transnational model of self-organisation – from developing and selling products to making exhibitions, films and books.

In times of deep social and political fracture Myvillages challenge preconceptions about the meaning of ‘the rural’today, towards a new political imagination and a culture of radical solidarity and care.
