Events in January 2020

In the first month of the year, PhotoQ Bookshop and World Press Photo organize a finissage of an exhibition and two book presentations. The venue is World Press Photo House at Westergas in Amsterdam. You’re welcome!

The year has just begun and yet there is already a finissage. On Friday 10 January from 5 to 7 p.m. we look back at the World Press Photo House at Westergas in Amsterdam with a snack and a drink at the ‘Rooted in Dialogue’ exhibition in which photographer Henk Wildschut and designer Robin Uleman show how recently their and ‘Ville de Cala is’ and ‘Rooted’ acclaimed books have been made. The exhibition can also be seen until Saturday, January 11, 2020.

Ville de Calais

On Thursday January 16 from 5 to 7 p.m., Leo Divendal presents his new cahier in the ‘maltarde’: Inner Court series. It is a tragic, ironic but also contemplative and loving story about the possibilities and impossibilities of love in our modern age of seeking and dating love.
The photographic images, made in Japan, form the backdrop and the silent witnesses of this drama.

On Sunday 26 January from 4 to 6 pm we will present ‘Insomnia’ by Annabel Oosteweeghel. Bookseller Edie Peters is going to talk to photographer Oosteweeghel and journalist Carlijn Vis, who wrote interviews for the book.

With the photo album, Oosteweeghel shows the world of sleepless people. The dark and hidden world of the night. Most of us drag. No less than 20 percent of the Dutch are awake. Loneliness, tossing and other nocturnal suffering are imminent.

Insomnia can be seen from January 18 to May 5, 2020 as an exhibition at Museum De Fundatie in Zwolle.
