THE CONTEMPORARY DUTCH PHOTO BOOK Exhibition Warsaw by Erik Kessels Photography

Curator: Erik Kessels

Honourable support: Kingdom of Netherlands Embassy in Warsaw
Opening: 05.09.2014 at 10:15 p.m.
Exhibition is open until 15.09.2014
Bwa Studio, ul. Ruska 46a/13 (inside the yard)

The exhibition presents over 50 contemporary dutch photobooks with curator’s introduction. Netherlands is one of the most important countries in the history of printing. It’s also a country with reach tradition of conceptual and documental photography. The current publishing boom comes from this tradition and it’s based on unique close collaboration between photographers, printers and designers. The exhibition aims to show the different trends and solutions that are characteristic for dutch photobooks. At the same time it’s an subjective choice of the curator who is also an artist working mainly with found photography.

Erik Kessels is since 1996 Creative Director of communications agency KesselsKramer in Amsterdam and works for national and international clients.

As an artist and photography collector Kessels has published several books of his 'collected' images: Missing Links (1999), The Instant Men (2000), in almost every picture (2001-2012) and Wonder (2006). Since 2000, he has been an editor of the alternative photography magazine Useful Photography.

For the DVD art project Loud & Clear he worked together with artists such as Marlene Dumas and Candice Breitz. Kessels writes regular editorials for numerous international magazines. He lectured at the D&AD Presidents Lecture and at several international design conferences such as in Singapore, Goa, NY, Toronto and Bangkok. He has taught at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy and at the Amsterdam Academy of Architecture where he curated a celebration of amateurism.

Kessels made and curated exhibitions such as The European Championship of Graphic Design, Graphic Detour, Loving Your Pictures, Use me Abuse me and Album Beauty . He also co-curated an exhibition called From Here on together with Martin Parr, Joachim Schmid, Clement Cheroux and Joan Fontcuberta.

In 2010 Kessels was awarded with the Amsterdam Prize of the Arts and in 2012 elected as the most influential creative of The Netherlands.
