Paul Kooiker, the history of naked art

In light of the 2018 Year of the Baroque, the Photography Museum in Antwerp is organising an exhibition dedicated to the work of Paul Kooiker (the Netherlands, °1964). His work is characterised by 'observation', voyeurism, shame and distance. He uses the old traditions as a starting point and questions the relationship between the artist and model. This project sees him make a unique and one-off trip into the Baroque style of the 17th and 18th century.
