This exhibition featured more than 110 black-and-white pictures by Dag Alveng, one of the most important Norwegian photographers. His ability to extract a universal meaning out of an apparently ordinary picture is what unifies his work. We can see through his lens, but at the same time he teaches us how to direct our sight to interpret the world around us. His photos are part of permanent collections of important museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the Museum Folkwang (Essen), the Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam) and the Sprengel Museum (Hanover). Curated by Pieter Tjabbes.
