PALMS. Visions of the good life. A dream, a hope, an escape from everyday life. With candles and ashtrays in the shape of palms or a glitter palm in an ice-cream sundae, we take a bit of it home—an admission that we dream a dream of great happiness, combined with a genial petty bourgeois mentality.

Megacool 4.0

Youth and Art
“Megacool 4.0” portrays “youth” as reflected by art. The presented works depict internal and external views of the young generation, their different facets, potential and perspectives, which often remain hidden from adults. Dynamics include aspects such as creativity, appropriation and resistance, and themes like identity, media, consumption, scenes, trends and life’s realities. Erudite essays describe and locate the phenomenon of youth culture against a background of research, sociology and cultural history.
One thing is clear: youth is and was always a complex and dynamic process – always thrilling and “megacool”!
