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
Especially for invitees of Lauwer Paul Knight (b. 1976, AU) has installed a selection of work. With the photographs from the series 'Chamber Music' (2009-2018) and a number of hand-woven textiles. Paul investigates what is left of intimicy in a copy. Either a personal moment within a photo or under a bedsheet, or the development into something new in its own two-dimensional space.
New neighbour to the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag
Lauwer found a home in De Stadhouder, just around the corner of the Gemeentemuseum, GEM Museum for Contemporary Art and Museum of Photography The Hague. 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.
No time during the day? On Friday evening you're able to drop by until 9 pm, or make an appointment.
