‘Relics of the Cold War
19 January – 15 August 2020
Museum de Fundatie laat de fotoserie Relics of the Cold War van Martin Roemers zien. Hij fotografeerde tussen 1998 en 2009 de in verval geraakte fysieke resten van de Koude Oorlog, vanuit de gedachte dat die grimmige periode voorgoed geschiedenis zou zijn. De serie krijgt een beangstigende actualiteit nu de oude tegenstellingen weer lijken te herleven.
