Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen has a rich and varied collection of photography numbering almost a thousand works. This exhibition brings together photographs from different periods under the title ‘Surreal’. It shows in an associative manner how artists, like Inez van Lamsweerde, Wally Elenbaas and Hiroshi Sugimoto, have used the medium of photography to conflate reality and fiction. In modern and contemporary art the body is no longer sacrosanct and often serves as a vehicle to excite or even disturb the viewer. And so the human body plays an important role in this exhibition.
