About Bert Teunissen
Bert Teunissen (born 1959 Ruurlo, Gelderland) is a Dutch photographer who, since 1996, has documented European homes built before World War II and their inhabitants in his book Domestic Landscapes: A Portrait of Europeans at Home. Teunissen has photographed houses built before electricity was common in order to preserve a quickly disappearing part of Western European life and culture. He later added images from Japan to his project.

DAZZLE is a dazzling new study by Teunissen about form, movement, body language and patterns; as it were, a sketch or a note in an attempt to interpret the street, its people and the time itself. Teunissen made his photo series during two walks in London and New York. It is an analogue story that originated in the dark room, which was created for pleasure and meant to be enjoyed by a large audience.

DAZZLE is the second publication of Bert Teunissen in collaboration with graphic designer Hans Gremmen and publisher Fw:Books.

About The Gallery Club & ARTIST FIRST!
The Gallery Club, LANGart (formerly Ron Lang Art), Francis Boeske and Cathelijne Dapiran all have a unique place in the visual art scene of the Netherlands. In addition to individual exhibitions, there will be joint presentations with crossovers between artists, art fair presentations and temporary initiatives abroad for a powerful and varied programming. As partners – coming from different backgrounds and generations – we have a large and broad network of artists and art interested parties, that will deliver a high-profile mix of shows, events and projects.

At the start of the new gallery season ARTIST FIRST! will open its doors for the first time with an exhibition in which all partners will show work by one artist. The exhibition offers a preview of the programming of the upcoming season and kicks off the season with powerful work by rising star RaQuel van Haver, an intimate installation of former Rijksakademie resident Eva Spierenburg and ceramic sculptures by Kiki Lamers.

The Gallery Club will program her special solo exhibitions at ARTIST FIRST! starting with the new series DAZZLE by photographer Bert Teunissen.

We look forward to seeing you in the Laurierstraat 82!
