Traditionally, the Opening of BredaPhoto is a big event in which our friends, guests and exhibiting photographers at the Festival from all over the world participate. This year the Opening is different: it will be our first event on the BredaPhoto/Digital Platform. Everybody from all over the world is invited to join the Opening and get a sneak preview of the BredaPhoto 2020 exhibitions.

The Opening will be presented by Lucas De Man, Belgian concept creator, presenter, TV Host and public speaker. He will introduce the new Director of BredaPhoto, Fleur van Muiswinkel, and interview four exhibiting photographers: Mary Sibande, Anthony Obayomi, Seppe Vancraywinkel en Michal Iwanowski. Their work will be shown through innovative slideshows. Young musicians from the province of Brabant (where Breda is located) will perform their improvised soundtracks, inspired by the work of these photographers.

Lucas will show you the exhibition ‘Power to the Models’, curated by Jan Hoek, that is on show at the Stedelijk (City) Museum Breda and the exhibition ‘China Imagined’ at the Grote Kerk (Great Church) in Breda. Furthermore he will digitally take you to PIER15 SKATEPARK, where the project ‘Destroy my Face’ by Erik Kessels is on display.
