Kadir van Lohuizen
Kadir van Lohuizen often works in areas of conflict and is regularly in Africa where the image of the “continent without hope” appears to be confirmed time and again. In 1996, he went in search of “the other Africa” and travelled down the Niger River.
His journey along the Niger River inspired him to follow other rivers to their source: the Yangtze (China), Ganges (India), Danube (Central and Eastern Europe), Amazon (South America), Mississippi (United States) and the Ob (Russia).
The result is the book “Rivers” (in Dutch Aderen, French title: Les Grands Fleuves du Monde) and the Rivers of the world exhibition, a joint production of the Institut Néerlandais and the Kunsthal in Rotterdam.
