‘Porn on paper. Taboo and tolerance through the ages'
22 March through 24 June 2018
In the exhibition 'Porn on Paper' the exciting, yet mostly hidden, story of Dutch pornography will be brought to life. By means of hundreds of books, magazines and podcasts the visitor will experience the relationship between pornography and society. The back and forth movements between taboo and tolerance, openness and secrecy are recurring themes throughout the centuries. This is not only the history of arousing and forbidden texts and illustrations, but also that of the influence of the church and political institutions, of criticism, legislation and censorship and the struggle against those powers.

Designer and illustrator Max Kisman (Doetinchem, 1953) made his reputation as a pioneer in the use of digital technology in graphic design. In a career spanning almost forty years, he has worked for clients such as Paradiso, VPRO television, the Volkskrant and the Financieele Dagblad in addition to teaching typography and illustration. For thirty years, Kisman has recorded at least one event per day in a diary in a style that is immediately recognizable, sometimes with figures in silhouette.
