Art & Teenagehood

Those photographs, raw yet sensual, explore the topic of teenage hood that blurs the lines of gender and challenge our reality. The artists we have selected capture the young generation as it is: moving in herd, craving sex, and transgression and without taboos.

Teenagers are pivotal figures of contemporary creation. Even though rarely tackled in the history of art, it has everything to become an emblematic subject matter of our time! The theme of teenage hood entangles other topics such as freedom, rebellion, eroticism, rebellion, and provocation. Teenagers have become real characters of our society, and artists often refer to their personal experiences, the quest for themselves or their sexuality. Teenagers tell themselves stories and have a distorted perception of reality and intimacy - which is what the photographs of Larry Clark and Rineke Dijkstra reveal.

Those artists want to capture the essence of youth, the rites of passage to adulthood, the relationship to one's body, behavioral disorders and the experiences that shape us. Teenagers are the ideal subject to express the deepest and rawest human emotions. Steven Siegel's teenagers tell us about communitarianism, while Bertrand Noel's are lonely, melancholic and marginal.

Discover a selection of works that tackle teenagehood in the most sincere and touching manner.
