- This exhibition showcases a different Africa: a continent that still defies the imagination, where creativity can bring prosperity. Haute Africa shows how clothing culture conveys and renews African identity.
- This brilliantly curated show at the Noorderlicht Festival examines the consequences of more than half the world’s population now living in cities, which comprise only three percent of the earth’s surface. Fascinating photographs and thought-provoking reading.
- Through the work of top photographers like Ad van Denderen, Martin Specht, Paul Seawright, Peter van Agtmael and Antonin Kratochvil, the exhibition and book,Warzone, pauses to examine the experience of soldiers who have been dispatched to the Warzones of our recent history. The traces in the landscapes in which they lived have been covered again by time, but the world of war will – for better and worse – continue to exist in their inner landscape.

The introductory essay is loaded with facts, statistics and questions.
