Carel van Hees (1954), known as a socially engaged documentary photographer and film makers, turns story-teller at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. In the late seventies and early eighties, Van Hees followed the heroic and at the same time tragic life of boxing champion Cor Eversteijn (1949-1983). Using numerous contemporary images and a selection of his own photographs, Carel van Hees sketches the rise and fall of the Eversteijn phenomenon.

The exhibition is accompanied by teh publication 'Eversteijn, bokser & herenkapper.

The project ‘Eversteijn, boxer and barber’ was made possible by Fonds BKVB, Mondriaan Foundation, VSBfonds, Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds, Van Leeuwen Van Lignac Stichting, Municipality of Rotterdam, Art and Culture department, G.Ph. Verhagen Stichting and the Centre of Visual Arts Rotterdam.
