In 2003 the Nederlands Fotomuseum became the most recent addition to this museum dense country.

Professor Frits Gierstberg, Head of Exhibitions at the Nederlands Fotomuseum in Rotterdam, will talk about the challenges that have faced the Museum since its inception, including issues relating to project-based collecting and the development of new interfaces in the museum environment.

He will also speak about his contributions to two recent publications: the critical history of photography in the Netherlands, ‘Dutch Eyes’ (2007) and ‘The Dutch Photobook’ (2012).

For details and booking, e-mail: historic.photography@museumwales.ac.uk with your name and telephone number.

This lecture forms part of a series accompanying a project by Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales to work on its rich and diverse historic photographic collections – a project made possible through a major gift from the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.

In partnership with the eCPR, at University of Wales Newport, the lecture series will reflect the exciting work that Amgueddfa Cymru is undertaking from 2012 to 2015.

Doors open 5.15pm, lecture begins at 5.45pm.
