David Goldblatt (b. Randfontein, 1930) is the éminence grise of South African photography, known for his subtle and sharp take on life in South Africa. With the exhibition Intersections
, Huis Marseille is the first to present a large survey of Goldblatt’s new colour photography in the Netherlands.
Inspired by the room in Huis Marseille displaying David Goldblatt’s most recent ‘AIDS Landscapes’, Han Nefkens has decided to acquire ten works which will be added to the long-term loan to Huis Marseille, with the aim of showing the photographs in a separate travelling exhibition dedicated to the theme of AIDS. This aim is in line with the programme to combat HIV-AIDS that Nefkens’ project ArtAids addresses and stimulates.
