The Knowing Image / L’image complice
[Exhibition The Knowing Image, Nerderlands Foto Instituut, Rotterdam, 10.09. - 29.10.2000 et Contretype 2 (CO2), la Raffinerie, Bruxelles, 22.11. – 22.12.2000]
Intimacy has invaded the public domain. Whether the context is politics, entertainment, advertising, or the internet, we are constantly bombarded with images of intimacy, making the confrontation between private and public emblematic of our times. This aesthetic is reflected in the work of the nine photographers and video artists presented here. The treatments range from somber and studied to theatrical and burlesque but collectively lay bare the relations with the Other.
