Intiem (translated ‘intimate’) is a project by Stichting FAAM in collaboration with the GGD region Utrecht and the municipality of Utrecht. The waiting room of the sexual health department in the Stadskantoor has recently been redecorated, and this stimulated FAAM to organize a quarterly exhibition in which love, sexuality and sexual pleasure are the central themes. The project stimulates young art historians and artists to work together. The first exhibition (July – September) shows works of artists Lucas Braak (2001) and Jennifer Knuchel (2001), supported by a text written by Cécile Steenman (1999).
FAAM Utrecht is a foundation with the objective to connect theory and practice. We feel that contact between the Art history department from Utrecht University and the education programs from HKU is essential, because the various students in the professional practice will often have to rely on each other.
The students from the various educations can learn from each other as well as inspire one another. FAAM Utrecht bridges the gap between these two worlds.
