Frits Gierstberg, head exhibitions of the Netherlands Photo Museum in Rotterdam has developed an exhibition within the framework of the Fourhundred Year Bilateral Relations between the Netherlands and Australia. The exhibition was commissioned by the Mondriaan Foundation and a catalogue was published by Nai Publishers. The Exhibition Dutch Dare was part of the cultural program of the Mondriaan Foundation, the Performing Arts Fund (Fonds voor Amateurkunst en Podiumkunsten) and the Foundation for International Cultural Activities (SICA), which was developed for the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Education, Culture and Science within the framework of the 2006 celebrations.
The Dutch Dare Exhibition is a compilation of works of various photographers and visual artists that have playfully combined traditions and genres by means of humor and irony. The exhibition provides critical reflections on developments in media, society and culture, with the aim to create an "Dutch Realism".
