Man and Meuse

OPENING 05.02 at Museum De Domijnen (NL)


In early February 2023, Museum de Domijnen in the Heritage Centre in Sittard will open a retrospective exhibition on the Meuse, the river that time and again plays an important role in the lives of Limburgers and residents of the region. For a long time, it was thought that we as humans could control the Meuse. But partly due to the impact of pollution and climate change, that way of life is changing. Increasingly, people are looking at how to build, work and live to the rhythm of the river. Unique to the exhibition is the combination of a social historical context with artistic inspiration and activism.

Irmel Kamp: Architectural Images

⟶ 23.04.2023 at Leopold Hoesch Museum (DE)


The photographer Irmel Kamp dedicates her work to European architectural modernism. In doing so, she takes a fundamentally serial approach, uses exclusively black-and-white photography, and always chooses a position that, as a public location, incorporates the surrounding space, while at the same time strikingly expressing the conciseness of the architectural form.


At the same time the exhibition HOESCH TALENTS 2022 is running.
