Discover WILLY VANDERPERRE prints, films, a rave and more… with a MoMu guide who encourages dialogue rather than the traditional monologue.

MoMu explores the oeuvre of the Belgian photographer Willy Vanderperre. His editorial work regularly appears in magazines such as AnOther Magazine, Dust, i-D, Perfect, Vogue and W Magazine. He has also photographed campaigns for fashion houses such as Dior and Prada, among others.

The exhibition highlights how Vanderperre’s fascination with youth has been a motivational force for almost three decades. In dialogue with his photographs he selected several artworks that have been an important source of inspiration in the ongoing development of his universe. The overview of his photographic practice explores the evolution of its visual language, as well as the years of collaboration with Olivier Rizzo and Raf Simons.

The theme of adolescence is a common thread throughout the exhibition. Childhood experiences and influences determine the formation of one's identity. The exhibition moreover explores the power of iconography with artworks by, amongst others, Cranach and Ashley Bickerton.

The exhibition features (explicit) images of naked people.

The students were given a tailored tour and we continued to work on the topic in class. [...] Plenty of wonder and inspiration, but also very clear to our pupils.
