July 2018 - Family of No Man, Cosmos Arles Books, by Robin Butter

Re-visioning the world through non-male eyes 

The Family of No Man is the culmination of an open call that has brought together 494 female and inter-gender artists from all around the world working in the medium of photography. The aim of this radical curatorial proposition is to revisit Edward Steichen’s original The Family of Man, a seminal photographic exhibition and publication from 1955, which in its time was described “as one of the most ambitious undertakings in an art museum”. Performing the patterns and production modes of the original project, which garnered both appraisal and controversy, The Family of No Man is conceived of as an open-ended physical and virtual platform of how the world today is seen through non-male eyes. The participants’ works are displayed in a series of interactive outdoor and indoor installations while new images, uploaded in real time to an online platform, will constantly update the selection during the Cosmos Arles Books week. This material in tandem with the visitors’ contributions will be deposited in a time capsule. Through its visual discourse, program of talks and parallel actions, The Family of No Man aspires to establish a critical space for an all-inclusive debate on gender equality, photography and its historiography. 

Exhibition curated by Brad Feuerhelm and Natasha Christia. 

Exhibition: July 2-8, 2018

February 2018 - Interview Cafe Obscura during Rotterdam Photo by Robin Butter

Cafe Obscura Life with Michel Maat interviewed me during Rotterdam Photo. Kudos for Michel; interviewing all of the exhibitors. Over the course of 2 hours. 
BTW I am also joking about the "Kill me" think cloud. 

As a photographer I think it is important to give presentations, talks to (your) audience. 
To talk about the work you create! 
Even though it excites, me, a lot, every, single, time. SUPER nervous.

January 2018 - Technical Assistant The Real Toy Story project / Michael Wolf by Robin Butter

The beginning of January I enjoyed my weeks, with being part of the build up team of Michael Wolf's major retrospective exhibition at the Photo museum in The Hague. 
I've been a huge fan of Wolfs work ever since I 'discovered' his photobook 'Tokyo Compression' during my first year at the Art Academy. 

I am very thankful to have been part of this side project. 

About The Real Toy Story

Wolf’s impressive, wall-sized installation entitled The Real Toy Story (2004-2018) is a commentary on industrial mass production in China. A vast mass of ‘Made in China’ toys (around 20,000 in all, covering 40 square metres of wall) flanks the photographs he took of workers in Chinese toy factories. The shy and sometimes resigned faces of the individual workers stand in sharp contrast to the overwhelming mass of cheap toys.

Until Apr-22-2018 (GO SEE IT!)

Der Greif kindly asked me to be one of their contributors for the Artist Blog since and be one of the Featured Artists for 2017,  after having a part of 'It takes my mind off things public in the last issue of Der Greif Magazine #9. 

I haven't written this much about photography in a while, i know that i talk about it on a daily basis. With a lot of colleague friends, but this week has been a nice reflection on my own work and the artists that inspire me to get out of my head and get started!
