This Body of Ours (Dit Lichaam van Ons) is a temporary queer collective consisting of nine young comic creators. They ask the question: What does the future of comics in the Netherlands look like? They answer this question with a riotous, queer and colorful comicbook and exhibition at Nieuwe Vide. The collective does this by participating in our artist in residency: DOC4 and thereby will also develop new work for the exhibition.

At Nieuwe Vide
Nieuwe Vide is transformed by This Body of Ours (Dit Lichaam van Ons) into a showcase of themselves as artists and cartoonists, with highlighted and enlarged images, sketches, character designs from the comic book and new work created during the residency in DOC4. In this way, the exhibition becomes a physical extension of the book ‘This Body of Ours’, launched by the collective in May 2024.

This will be part of Stripdagen Haarlem. In addition to the work by the artists themselves, this exhibition – on display during the Stripdagen Haarlem – will also be expanded with an ongoing collective artwork that will be worked on all weekend.

The concept of the cadavre exquis, where each person draws a body part without knowing what the previous body part looks like, is carried out on a large scale at Nieuwe Vide. It will provide an ever-growing and developing picture of the diversity of identities in the Dutch comics world and environment.

After the Stripdagen Haarlem, this exhibition will remain on display until September 29th, 2024.

ZineFest
In the middle of the exhibition, (Femi)Zine (Mani)Fest will take place on June 1st, a zine fest in collaboration with The Young Feminist Collective (JongFems Haarlem). All kinds of (zine) makers show and/or sell zines, merch and more with a feminist character.
You can register for a stall until April 16 via this link:

Panel/Brunch
During the Stripdagen Haarlem (31.05 to 02.06), a panel discussion will take place in the exhibition on the 2nd of June (with brunch, 12:00h) and there will be an intersectional reading corner/hang out.

About the publication This Body of Ours (Dit Lichaam van Ons)
‘This body of ours’ will be a Dutch anthology of 120 pages. Eight comic strip creators each develop a graphic story, while the ninth cartoonist, together with a designer, is involved in designing the book.

Too often, comics only get attention when they are educational or informative. In ‘This Body of Ours’ the cartoonists are given the freedom to decide for themselves which stories they want to tell. So the book becomes pulpy, funny, personal and yes, even pornographic!

To give structure to this colorful and diverse book, use ‘the body’ as a guideline. As a result, there are three ‘chapters’: Head, Heart and Legs. In this way, we create stories that make us think, stories that touch us emotionally, and stories that help us face the future. In this way, the comic collection forms a cadavre exquis of the group.
