'Uit het geheugen: Over weten en vergeten'
('From memory: about knowing and forgetting') including 20 photos from the series 'Alzheimer'
18 07 2009 – 02 05 2010
People remember and people know. But people 'forget' also. From
Memory deals with the fascination for memory in the worlds of
science and art. The exhibition sheds a light on an age-old search:
from the medieval art of memory, over the earliest psychological
research, to contemporary experiments with artificial intelligence.
Artists draw inspiration from memories. The exhibition presents
medieval treatises, old and modern art, photographs and film excerpts. Memory is a manifestation of human potential, memorydisease is one of failure. Libraries, encyclopaedias and the internet
are all attempts to collect information and thus help our memories.
But are they not doomed to failure? Besides, what is dementia and
what is an elephantine memory?

Marks of Honour – A Striking Library is a homage to the photo book. The exhibition shows the inspiration a new generation of relevant photographers has had from the history of photography in the form of books. The photo book is a source for artistic inspiration and creative reference, especially since Robert Frank published his Les Américains in 1958. Photography in books has not only influenced collectors and curators, but also generations of photographers.

"With keen and objective precision, Peter Granser focuses in his color photographs, taken in Texas in 2006/2007, on the plethora of relics and signs that proliferate across the landscape and provide us with insights into the strange and contradictory state of contemporary US identity......"

Great Expectations – Contemporary photography looks at today's bitter years
28 03 2009 – 14 06 2010
Group-exhibiion with work by Vahram Aghasyan, Éric Baudelaire, Frédéric Delangle, Martin Eder, Iván Edeza, Lukas Einsele, Patrick Galbats,Dionisio González, Peter Granser, Stanley Greene, Joachim Koester, Laurence Leblanc, Zwelethu Mthethwa, Adi Nes, Suzanne Opton, Ari Saarto, Bruno Serralongue, Melanie Smith, Jules Spinatsch, Sada Tangara, Kai Wiedenhofer.
By way of a curious coincidence, the exhibition Great Expectations appears at a time when the financial crisis strikes the world and raises doubts. The faint memory of the Great Depression of 1929 suddenly arises again. The moment seems well chosen for us to remember some hard truths concerning the social and moral status of men and women caught in the torment of modern upheaval. When Edward Steichen curated The Bitter Years at New York's MoMA in 1955, in the full blast of the post-war economic miracle, he wanted to recollect the dark moments of the crisis that hit the United States in the 1930s. Great Expectations, at the Casino Luxembourg in spring 2009, draws on Steichen's theme in order to invoke the conflictual areas of contemporary life, as seen through the lens of documentary or conceptual photography by reporters, photographers and artists of our day.
