Hiphophuis celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2022 with the theme Staying Power. With this theme, we explore and celebrate on how to stay physically and mentally fit as individuals and as a community in a constantly changing world. 

To reflect, celebrate and (re)imagine the future we chose to collaborate with British artist Lakwena, Kunsthal and Patta. Lakwena's work is an invitation to hope, perseverance, and inspiration. A much-needed and fitting visual language for our anniversary theme. 

The collaboration consists of 3 layers that each will speak to different parts of our dynamic community; an exhibition, Powertalk and limited edition hoodie. 



A Powertalk with Lakwena Maciver hosted by Farida Sedoc

For the PowerTalk, multidisciplinary visual artist Farida Sedoc will talk to Lakwena Maciver. Farida and Lakwena are both artists with a bicultural background and have an in-depth conversation about lived experiences, power dynamics in the art world in England and the Netherlands and an exchange takes place with the audience that is largely made up of creatives of color.
