The Royal Academy of Art, The Hague appoints Broomberg & Chanarin

10 mei 2016

It is with great pride that the KABK announces the appointment of Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin as lecturers at our Photography department for the academic year 2016/2017. London-based Broomberg (1970) and Chanarin (1971) have had numerous international exhibitions. Venues and collections include the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, MOMA, Tate Britain, Shanghai Biennial, Victoria & Albert Museum and many more. Major awards include the ICP Infinity Award (2014) and the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize (2013).

While tackling various political, religious and historical issues, the duo works across traditional photojournalism and other visual media, such as publications, photography installations and curatorial assignments and projects. Their strong engagement in contemporary multi-layered visual culture and the perception of it, adds perfectly to the KABK's Photography curriculum and The Hague as international city of peace and justice. Broomberg and Chanarin will teach ‘Fiction and Society’ in the second year (full-time and part-time) and graduating students in their final year.
