Huis Marseille, Museum for Photography / 13 September – 8 December 2014

With selections by Valérie Belin, Jacqueline Hassink, Naoya Hatakeyama, Sarah Jones, Rob Nypels… As well as Uta Barth, Winfried Bullinger, Balthasar Burkhard, Ed Burtynsky, Popel Coumou, Jeff Cowen, Susan Derges, Charlotte Dumas, Ger van Elk, David Goldblatt, Candida Höfer, Axel Hütte, Luisa Lambri, Ryan Mc Ginley, Yasumasa Morimura, Vik Muniz, Deimantes Narkevicius, Thomas Ruff, Dr. Erich Salomon, Jörg Sasse, Thomas Struth, and others

The exhibition The Marseillaise(s) / 15 years of collecting focuses on the artistic growth and development of five photographers with whom the museum has worked regularly in recent years, namely: Valérie Belin, Jacqueline Hassink, Naoya Hatakeyama, Sarah Jones and Rob Nypels. Each artist was invited to install their work in a gallery of their choice. Their assignment was to start from their contemporary work but to include ‘older’ acquisitions in the Huis Marseille collection. The result is that – in very different ways – each artist has depicted the force of their own personal and artistic development over the last 15 years.
