Totaalvoetal is a Dutch term meaning total football. It came to life in the 1970s and when executed changes a formation into fluid movement that gives the game it’s beautiful principles. This was the first time that within the tactics of football an aesthetic value was ascribed. This show is taking elements of football imagery and imbuing them with artistic value. It’s a transgression that moves the audience from the stadium to the white cube.
