Structures of Identity shows how photographers from different periods and diverse cultures have used the power of the portrait to confirm or, indeed, critically investigate stereotypical ideas about gender, race, status and nationality. The exhibition, featuring works form the renowned Walther Collection, includes iconic portraits by photographers including August Sander, Richard Avedon and J.D. Ojeikere combined with the work of contemporary photographers like Yto Barrada, Samuel Fosso, Zanele Muholi and Guy Tillim.
This tour is especially organised for Museumkaart holders and takes place on Saturdays in July (14, 21 and 28) and August (11, 18 and 25) at 11am. Limited spots are available so please book here in advance.
The exhibition is a collaboration between The Walther Collection, Neu-Ulm (Germany) and New York (US), and Foam.
Foam is supported by BankGiro Loterij, De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek, Gemeente Amsterdam, Olympus and the VandenEnde Foundation.
