The Meme Café is the heart of the thematic programme Rabbit Hole. A place where the audience can immerse themselves in the memeverse. On show are special meme-related works and installations by artists and filmmakers; there are possibilities to contribute to the exhibition by adding your own memes, and several events are being organised in the café.

Get Your Views; Is This Meme Art?

Get Your Views; Is This Meme Art?

Combining a digital art series with video art, the work humorously questions the power of consumerism in the post-internet age. The videos explore the current state of our hyper-connectivity while the digital art series focuses on internet aesthetics and its relationships with modern art. 'Digital garbage' (screenshots, personal photos and unused selfies), is used, further incorporating popular meme aesthetics.
