Last week I visited an exhibition called The Hoerengracht in the Amsterdams Historisch Museum. It’s about prostitution all around the world.

The exhibition, initiated by Edward and Nancy Kienholz has been exhibited all over the world, and now there is a chance to see it in Amsterdam. The exhibition starts with paper mache dolls, behind the windows, dressed in lingerie.

There are also some very intriguing photography about prostitues. At the end of the exhibition (my favorite part) were three outfits by the Dutch designers Mada van Gaans, Bas Kosters and EnD. On the wall, there was a sort of vending machine with rings in it, in stead of food. Above the machine it said ‘be nice to a girl, buy here a ring.’

The exhibition closes with a production by Lidewij Edelkoort. Photographs and images put into a film.

All in all, a very intriguing exhibition about the taboos on prostitution. You can find more information about the exhibition on their website. It can be visited untill the end of August 2010.
