The Artist Talk Show - Power to the Models
Sunday, October 4, 2020

The Artist Talk Show is a weekly talk show in which phhttps://youtu.be/LwHk-NLXSc8otographers, scientists, journalists and other guests discuss the theme of BredaPhoto 2020: ‘the best of times, the worst of times’. Each week, one topic will be discussed, using the work of photographers who exhibit at BredaPhoto 2020.

Hasna El Maroudi

Jan Hoek

Lotte van Eijk

Mohan Verstegen

 

Moderator for today is Hasna El Maroudi, co-founder of the feminist platform Magazine Lilith and journalist for De Volkskrant, De Correspondent and NPO Radio 1. She meets with Jan Hoek and some of his ‘models’ who created the exhibition ‘Power to the Models’ curated by Jan Hoek , a co-production between BredaPhoto and Stedelijk Museum Breda.

With the theme of BredaPhoto ‘the best of times, the worst of times’ in the back of his mind, he realized that if you really want to change something then you have to approach it in a radically different way.

We consider it normal that a photographer, with his or her background and norms and values, determines how a model is photographed. The power in the relationship is clear: the photographer is leading, the model conforms. But what if you turn the tables around? What if you give the power in the relationship to the role the model? Jan Hoek looked for eleven models that are often photographed in a one-sided way. He offered them the opportunity to create an image of themselves in their own way. They make the plan, manage the budget, determine the location and choose the photographer.

Power to the Models is the result: eleven installations of eleven models that include Chiara Bardelli Tonino, a photo editor of the Italian Vogue. Mohan Verstegen, a soldier who is also a queer activist, Sylvana Simons, a politician and activist, and DJ Tiësto, a famous DJ. Other models are Baqteria, Hatti Rees, Bruin Parry, Lotte van Eijk, Ismail Ilgun, Jyoti Weststrate and Dick de Koning. The Exhibition is on display at Stedelijk Museum Breda.

Jan Hoek graduated from the Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam and is known for his often controversial work in which he plays with stereotypes and imaging. He portrayed a former drug addict in Amsterdam as a supermodel, taxi drivers from Nairobi as movie stars and had 30 tattoo artists put a self-portrait of themselves on his body. In his projects, he lets people who are often ‘invisible’ play a prominent role. Jan Hoek’s work has been exhibited at exhibitions worldwide and he sells his work through his own website, whereby the buyer’s income is decisive for the selling price.

Moderator: Wander Eikelboom

Experience Designer & Alumnus CMD: Ludo Poot

Artist, designer, independent film and theatre maker and art director of interdisciplinary design studio Polymorf: Marcel van Brakel

Tomorrow’s world is one in which man will have to give up his position as a dominant species if the world is to continue to exist. But what does this new world – the Post-Antropoocene – look like? What kind of new relationships should we enter into with non-human actors – animal, vegetable, geological, technological? In what ways do we live together? How do we communicate? What role does technology play and what happens to the human body?

Art director Marcel van Brakel of interdisciplinary design studio Polymorf, believes that we will merge with everything that is organic and non-organic and in that process new bodies and senses will evolve. Inspired by Donna Haraway’s book ‘Staying with the Trouble’, he and a team of designers design the installation Symbiosis in which the visitor physically experiences what it’s like to form new relationships of kinship through VR, soft-robotics, smell and taste.

In his installations CMD cum laude alumnus Ludo Poot investigates how the post-human sensory body can use technology to enhance its senses and thus create a deeply felt connection with its environment. For his graduation project Lucio Ludo designed a physical space as an extension of our emotionality.

From an early age I have been fascinated by other people, more specifically by their behavior and interaction with one another. What fascinates me so much about identity is how it is shaped and formed by the environment and culture people grow up in. This fascination arose because I grew up between two cultures, the Dutch and the Surinamese. In my photography
I want to show the true identity of my subject through portrait photography. I pay attention to details and my aim is to show that every human being is beautiful in their own way.

Renée Paule

Marc Prüst

During this programme we will discuss the creative process of two special artists on BredaPhoto: Raquel van Haver and Renée Paule. Both artists take full control in the creation of their images. How do they come up with their ideas and concepts, do they use a fixed method or not? And how do these artists themselves feel that their work fits the theme of BredaPhoto?

The Dutch artist of Colombian origin classifies her own work as noisy art with which she wants to give a voice to people on the frayed edges of society. She works in a multidisciplinary way, Van Haver collects the building blocks for her paintings, photo collages, drawings and other forms during long journeys in West Africa and South America. She was educated at the HKU in Utrecht and has had exhibitions at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, the BOZAR in Brussels and won the Royal Prize for Free Painting in 2018.

Bernice Notenboom

Barbara Debeuckelaere

Mateo Ancis


Moderator Bernice Notenboom (polar explorer), Barbara Debeuckelaere and Mateo Ancis talk about how photographers can tell the story of climate change and Environmental Footprints.

Barbara Debeuckelaere (°1969, BE) is a photographer, and a former radio and television journalist. In her work she concentrates on systemic thinking, capitalism, normalization, power, money. Her work is caught somewhere between documentary and conceptual as she formally visualizes an abstract idea, at the same time incorporating real events. People are at the core of her work and even if they do not appear in images, they are very present. Her work aims to visualise the invisible and is critical of the creeping normalization in the neoliberal realm of things. Next year she will normally finish her Master of Visual Arts, Photography at the KASK School of Arts Ghent (BE).

Mateo Ancis is a landscape photographer who focuses on making images during long walks by foot through inhospitable landscapes. Although he is not a climate activist, he cannot ignore the consequences of climate change.
