Laila Mubarak – For Who She Is

opening 26 October, 7 – 9 pm

on view until 18 January 2019

'For Who She Is' is a quest for who someone really is, or can be. In this photo series Laila Mubarak surpasses what is self-evident. Laila Mubarak (b. 1979, NL) captures inner processes. Her subject is often the young woman or young man and the life events they live through. With a camera and knowledge of Gestalt therapy Laila gets through to who is in front of her.

Is it even possible to see people for who they are?

 

Paul Knight – A Personal Selection: Chamber Music and textile work

on view until 20 October, by invitation only

After the official opening in October Lauwer is open for visits every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. Only here art is connected to fashion and photography, and as such the gallery stays close to what is encountered every day.

A Glitch in Photography

In this project photography gets reinvented. As soon as artists look at the limitations of the camera as a challenge, 'glitches' make room for interaction, chance and play. The project consists of publications and a lecture. Commissioned by Encontros de Fotografia, with Katharina Gaenssler, Rosa Menkman, Spector Books, Universidade do Porto, and others.
