Intimate Strangers

Intimate Strangers juxtaposes Carnival Strippers and Pandora’s Box, two very different projects that provide insight into a world where women work and make choices, but also form and project their own identities. The exhibition throws light on our assump­tions about social and gender roles, fantasy and power, porno­graphy and self-expression.

Mediations at FOMU Antwerp

This retrospective takes its name from an installation created by the artist as a critical look at the photographs she took during the popular uprising in Nicaragua in 1978 and 1979. The title, Mediations, reflects Meiselas’ overarching aspirations for photography: “You think it is useful to go out into the world or you don’t. I am someone who does see the value in that. But it is only worth doing if you become a bridge for information and ideas.”
