10 exceptions to the rule
A small glass booth in the middle of the city displays a different scene each day; images we usually do not encounter in the public domain. As rare relics, people are installed behind soundproof glass. With the series of ten disconcerting images, Verhoeven hopes to expose our collective unease. The accompanying texts describe the unsettling images in a business-like manner, exemplifying the DNA of our time.
Unsuspecting passers-by are encouraged by the business-like presentation to determine their position in relation to these controversial images. Why are some images considered tainted when they were tolerated just twenty years ago? Have we become less malleable as species? Or have we simply lost our naive political correctness? Is it good that our children do not see certain things, or have we gone to the extremes in our drive to protect?
