Graphic designer Alfons Hooikaas designed the catalogue for In your face, the exhibition’s typography and the floorplan. In his designs he often mixes different sorts of information to form a new whole, which reveals underlying connections and relationships. In the exhibition catalogue the relationships between the participants are shown through images, graphics and a series of key words.

In 2008, after eighteen years of capitalism, Russia had 101 billionaires. In the book 101 billionaires, photographer Rob Hornstra focuses our attention on the downside of hard Russian capitalism: a section of the populations has in fact become poorer. Hornstra gives an impression of this world of past glory, poverty and drugs. On the large wall he presents a preview of the book Empty Land | Promised Land | Forbidden Land, which will be published in November.

Otten is showing the follow-up to her project World Skin Color Maps, in which she carted the various shades of skin around the world. She is currently exploring how these skin colors have spread over the years in relation to migration and urbanisation. Research and cataloguing are a constant in her work.
