About the workshop

During this walk-in workshop you will be challenged to take a photo inspired by the visual language of Paul Kooiker. Create a type of beauty that is not superficial and explore how you can create a surreal image with simple tools.

Your best image will be printed to take home.

About the exhibition

Paul Kooiker plays with different themes and breaks with multiple traditions in the field of beauty, gender, reality and photography. For example, he takes all his photos with just his smartphone. In addition, the models seem to transcend classical gender identity and beauty ideals. Sometimes it is even unclear whether it concerns a doll or a human being. The artist does this by having his models assume unusual poses and often hiding their faces. For example, by partially covering the face with hair (a common element) or leaving it out of the frame.
