Photographer's Note

Behold the Man

After the visit 5 museums in 3 days (the 6th will follow tomorrow) it is inevitable to interrupt the series Mixed Architecture for a moment and show you a few new museum observations.
One of my favourite subject in this theme is the picture in a picture.
The focus in this picture is on photographer. You can see the artwork though the equipment of the woman. I used this DOF to accentuate this.
In my next upload I will show so more of the installation of Marlene Dumas

The picture is taken at the exhibition BEHOLD THE MAN in Museum de Fundatie in Zwolle.

From 1 October 2016 to 15 January 2017, Museum de Fundatie in Zwolle will present the exhibition Behold the Man. With 100 works by artists such as Kokoschka, Brancusi, Schad, Picasso, Nussbaum, Bacon, Goldin, Trecartin, Dumas, Richter and Rauch, Behold the Man will show how artists of the past century successfully used the seemingly clear and straightforward genre of the portrait to evoke the richness and complexity of the modern world. The curator of Behold the Man is art critic Hans den Hartog Jager, who also organized the exhibitions More Light (2011) and More Power (2014).

The organizing principle of the exhibition Behold the Man seems simple at first: one hundred portraits of one hundred people from the past one hundred years – exactly one from each year. They vary from Oskar Kokoschka’s Self-Portrait (1917) to Neo Rauch’s Storm Front (2016), from Pablo Picasso’s Large Still Life with a Pedestal Table (Marie-Thérèse) (1931) to Kerry James Marshall’s Scout Master (1996), and from Francis Bacon's Sphinx (1953) to Tracey Emin’s Why I Never Became a Dancer (1995).
