Open Day at Royal Academy of Art, The Hague (KABK)
As most people will know by now, next to being a photographer, I am also co-head of the BA Photography - full-time and part-time - and the MA Photography & Society at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague (KABK). As we are an international academy with over 50% foreign students, all our lessons are taught in English. If you are considering studying Photography, you are more than welcome to join the Open Day at the KABK in Den Haag on Saturday 26 January 2019 from 10 am until 5 pm. And if you don’t plan to study photography, but just want to know what we do, please also drop by for a drink or a talk. The day is packed with opportunities to attend interviews, have your portfolio reviewed, follow guest lessons and workshops, talk to students and teachers or to simply look around and see work of the leading photographers of the future. Hope to see you there! Photo by Frederik Klanberg.

Collaboration Adam Broomberg and students KABK
“The idea of revolution has been co-opted by the right. The threat, in the form of Donald Trump’s ‘whitelash’ fascism, is not just apparent in the United States. Trump’s election has emboldened the right wing throughout Europe. …. With forthcoming elections in France, The Netherlands and elsewhere in Europe we cannot wait a single moment longer to register our fear but also our commitment to resist the voices of xenophobia, misogyny, racism, and intolerance.” Together with students from Royal Academy of Art in The Hague [KABK] and HfbK Hamburg, Adam Broomberg has set up a digital platform Hands Off Our Revolution to collectively express their concerns regarding the rise of right wing populism. Everyone is invited to participate by uploading imagery. Frieze wrote a short piece about it.
