22nd May 2013, Roy Villevoye and Koos Breukel in FOAM, photography museum, Amsterdam


- The photographers who “had come to a dead end in Western art and wanted to visit the other side”

- The one who wrote the exhibition text telling about the: “journey to ‘the end of the earth’”, visiting isolated places said: “(…)at least a three-day journey from the ‘civilized world’”.

- The people who decide to have this exhibition in the museum

I think, people who are doing such a show and writing such a text are on the edge of being racist. I wondered if they might be looking at things like long ago, when white males were traveling to observe and take photos of whoever is not white males and calling their work ‘anthropological research in a not civilized world’.
