‘Pass It On. Private Stories, Public Histories’ is a follow up to the exhibition of the same name, which took place at FOTODOK from November 2020–February 2021. As the show largely happened during a lockdown, FOTODOK wanted to find alternative ways to open it up to our audience. We created a virtual tour where visitors could immerse themselves in the digital space. We also developed a platform that would provide a much-needed personal and tactile experience of the works. In other words—we translated the exhibition into printed matter.
‘Pass It On’ presents five ongoing photographic projects that address family archives.
‘A Garden Revisioned’ is based on Inge Meijer’s unexpected discovery of hundreds of negatives from pre-wedding photoshoots at an abandoned wedding hall in Gwangju, South Korean.
Lebohang Kganye’s ‘Ho thubeha ha lebone’ (A breakage of the light) is rooted in the artist’s research of her own family’s pictures and history in apartheid South Africa.
‘Operation Detachment’ by Marianne Ingleby deals with what she inherited from her grandfather—an archive of more than 500 images he made as a volunteer army photographer in Iwo Jima in 1945.
Pablo Lerma initiated ‘It Doesn’t Stop at Images’ on the occasion of the show, and dove into the archives of IHLIA LGBTI Heritage, creating an alternative representation of a gay extended family.
Finally, ‘When Summer Became Winter’ by Yara Jimmink, yet to be exhibited at Domplein, Utrecht, as an outdoor installation later in 2021, reflects on her grandparents’ documentation of their move from Indonesia to the Netherlands.
