3 Afternoon & 4 Afternoon
For over twenty-five years I’m working within the cultural field as manager and curator for institutions such as World Press Photo (Amsterdam), Magnum Photos (Paris) Institut Néerlandais (Paris) and Nederlands Fotomuseum (Rotterdam).
Actually I’m artistic director at the Foundation Grote Kerk Breda (Great Church of Breda). This is a magnificent national monument dating from the 14th century. Besides the management of this monument I’m in charge of a high-quality cultural program within the field of contemporary art and photography. Actually, I am a member of the advisory board of Atelier EXB and advisor for Mondriaan Fund for photography.
Specialized in photography I do have also an extensive knowledge of contemporary art and graphic design.
