Five years on from its very successful first edition, the Nederlands Fotomuseum is proud to present QUICKSCAN NL#02, an exhibition that puts a finger on the pulse of Dutch photography to give the public a taste of the latest, most exciting trends in Dutch photography.
The exhibition will feature 15 to 20 photographers currently active in the Netherlands, showing work they have produced in the last two years that has mostly not yet been on show anywhere else. The photographers and artists set to contribute to QUICKSCAN NL#2 include: Laurence Aëgerter, Gwenneth Boelens, Jan Dirk van der Burg, Anne Geene, Jan Hoek, Stephan Keppel, Kasia Klimpel, Sjoerd Knibbeler, Ola Lanko, Willem Popelier, Jannemarein Renout, Jan Rosseel, Collectief Salvo, Marleen Sleeuwits, Batia Suter, Elisabeth Tonnard and Mariken Wessels.
Signalling new trends
As with the first exhibition, the focus of QUICKSCAN NL#02 is not so much on revealing promising new talent as on the innovative ways in which photographers, graphic designers and fine artists are currently using the medium of photography. What new ways and possibilities are they exploring? Can we discern new developments and how do we interpret these?
Building on the success of QUICKSCAN NL#01
Not only did QUICKSCAN NL#01 present a wide-ranging and inspiring introduction to the vanguard of Dutch photography, its success also established the exhibition as the benchmark, launching the international careers of participating photographers such as Kim Boske, Melanie Bonajo, Katja Mater, Rob Hornstra, Awoiska van der Molen, Anouk Kruithof, Paulien Oltheten, Wassink Lundgren en Luuk Wilmering.
