In aanwezigheid van Kadir van Lohuizen
On Friday 22 June at 18:00 hours the opening of the extraordinary exhibition ‘Wasteland’ takes place. The exhibition is open to visitors during the festival and for the duration of the summer, as a special installation on the IJ river shore close to EYE Film Museum.
Photojournalist Kadir van Lohuizen - winner of the World Press Photo Award 2018 ‘Environment’ - documented the main waste streams in five metropolises: Tokyo, New York, Jakarta, Sao Paolo, Lagos, and his hometown Amsterdam. In 2050, 70 percent of the world population will live in a city. Together they produce an enormous amount of waste, which a lot of metropolises are already unable to process. With his work, he tells the story of the metropolitan waste industry.
The result is an impressive photographed and filmed exposé of pictures and video footage made by drones of waste dumps. Van Lohuizen provides insight into the consequences of our consumer behaviour
, the waste management in cities and the economic impact of this industry. ‘Wasteland’ also shows the often appalling circumstances in which so many people in the waste industry earn their money. The opening, with the artist present, starts on Friday at 18:00 hours. The exhibition is free to visit with your Festival Pass from Wednesday to Sunday. Go to our ticket page for more information.
