    Where will we go?

    Exhibition with photography by Kadir van Lohuizen and Hugo Schuitemaker

    What do you do if you find yourself surrounded by water? If your street, home, belongings, yourself and your loved ones are literally no longer to keep your heads above water? This is the key question in two multimedia installations that may not initially strike a chord, but which do actually concern us all if we bother to stop and think. Where will we go? was created by photo journalist Kadir van Lohuizen, and The Waterland by social designer and photographer Hugo Schuitemaker.

    During Hoogtij social designer and photographer Hugo Schuitemaker will hold consultation hours from 19.00-23.00. You can visit him to learn more about the height of the water in your house and what you should do to be prepared.

    In the vault will screen Kadir van Lohuizen’s choice, a surprise film. He will introduce the film via a digital connection at 20.30.

    Exhibition with photography by Kadir van Lohuizen and Hugo Schuitemaker

    The celebrated photo journalist Kadir van Lohuizen is interested in the more obscure events that take place in the world he has been following keenly for many years. Over the past twenty years, his lens has captured conflicts in Africa, refugees in Afghanistan and life on and alongside the world’s seven major rivers. For his latest project Where will we go?, Van Lohuizen visited a diverse range of places with one thing in common: they are all under threat from the humanitarian consequences of the rising sea level. Kiribati, Fiji, the Carteret Islands in Papua New Guinea, Bangladesh, the coastline of Guna Yala in Panama, Yorkshire and Miami.

    Photographer  and social designer Hugo Schuitemaker brought the Doomsday floodscenario into the present day for his project The Waterland: he compiled a newspaper reporting a fictive flood disaster in 2016, quoting the stories of some of the victims. Real people show how floods here would affect their lives. The stories in the newspaper are interspersed with an illustrated reconstruction of the flood. The Waterland has been distributed house-to-house in the ‘disaster area’. Hugo Schuitemaker made an installation based on his newspaper for the exhibition in Het Nutshuis.
