On the second day of our Antwerp Adventure we visit two museums, first up was the FOMU.My favorite expo was the one called "The Enclave" by Richard Mosse. I had seen it before on tumblr and fell in love with it immediately.
Richard Mosse documents armed rebel groups in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo using a type of infrared film that was originally developed by the military to detect camouflage. This now discontinued film registers infrared light and is characterised by its unusual colour palette of vivid pink and teal blue. Which kind of gives the photo's a magical feeling, even though the whole situation is horrible.
Another expo I really liked was called "The Magazine Work"by Walker Evans. It's about the work of Walker Evens that was publicized in magazines. Really inspiring how well these series fit together.
I highly recommend you visit the FOMU when you're in Antwerp!
Next up was the MOMU. I had heard so much about it so I was pretty curious about it, and I must say they didn't disappoint me. The collection looked incredible. I can't show you my favorite part because it was some kind of digital movie that highlighted some pieces in a incredibly beautiful way. So if you want to see that you need to make a trip to Antwerp.
Every year, MoMu gives the ‘MoMu award’ to a MA student of the fashion department of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Antwerp. The winner get's to show their work in the MOMU gallery for four months. The winner of this year was Madeleine Coisne with her collection "Centers". (If you want to know more about it click here) What I loved most about this was, the proces from inspiration to a picture or drawing to a finished product.
Sorry for the overload on pictures and information, but I just get so excited about museums.
Still got some more stuff to show you from Antwerp, but my internship started again and everything is very hectic atm. So I can't promise you that it will be online by friday. Have a nice week!
