L’Âge d’or is an underground exhibithion with a selection of artworks that takes you to the dark fancies of poetic sentiment and the surrealistic imagery of fear and doubt.
The reason for this pop-up exhibition arose from a question, the curator Baharak Dehghan, asked herself:
What is left of the bourgeois morality that was responsible for the banning of Luis Buñuel’s surrealistic film L’Âge d’or from movie theaters in the 1930’s? Is this conservative mentality stronger than ever, or do we live in times of supernatural desires and lusts, irrational ideas and fantasies typical of the surrealistic discourse?
In this exhibition twentyfive artists search for an answer, if there was one to start with.

The emerging artists stem from a variety of countries and backgrounds. With their different cultural perspectives they give a unique impression of their views on the themes expressed in L’Âge d’or. The purpose of the exhibition is to get people to think about cultural and moral established values. Like the movie does!
L’Âge d’or will be presented in different  locations as a pop-up exhibition.

The Second edition will take place on Saturday 7 December 2019 in Sexyland,  Amsterdam.
