Book launch Erik Kessels
Erik Kessels has a preference for the imperfect and the incomplete. His latest book The Many Lives of Erik Kessels is the highly anticipated first illustrated survey of the curator, editor, artist and publicist.

It’s a mid-career retrospective on how to look - and how to better understand the hybrid practice of this artist who defies categorization. Kessels' varied experiments with photography and photographic archives have allowed reconsidering the medium’s vernacular and narrative possibilities. 


The Many Lives of Erik Kessels, 2017, € 60,-

On 11 May the official Dutch book presentation and signing will be held at Foam accompanied with a lecture by the author. You are welcome from 18.30 hrs onwards.   

The Many Lives of Erik Kessels is co-published by Aperture Foundation and CAMERA, Italian centre for photography.

Foam is supported by the BankGiro Loterij, De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek, City of Amsterdam, Delta Lloyd, Olympus and the VandenEnde Foundation.
