Els Barents, director of Huis Marseille: 'Looking' is a verb
Once the exhibition The Marseillaise / fifteen years of collecting has been opened on 13 September, Els Barents will be stepping down as the director of Huis Marseille. From 1999 onwards she has been responsible for putting Amsterdam’s privately financed museum for photography firmly on the map, both at home and abroad.
