Photographer's Note

Magnatic North

After a disturbing message from Murat (Mcmtanyel), TE seems to be prolonging his life for a while.
Some repair work has been done but not all parts have been repaired (yet?), but we can continue for a while.

In the forum I read a message from SteveH in which he expressed his concerns about the survival of TE and reported on a small study of alternative sites. I have since visited his recommended website and signed up.
At first sight, I find on this site many things that made TE so attractive. Who knows, we may need this escape route soon. I'll keep informed.

But I will remain faithful for TE as long as possible and upload 3 photos today taken in the Schirn Kunsthalle in Frankfurt, during the last stage of the short tour de Lars and I recently made and of which he has already shown some photos.

The photos were taken at the “Magnetic North” exhibition. An exhibition built around the Canadian “Group of Seven”. The website of the Schirn Kunsthalle provided very little information, possibly with the idea that this would promote the sale of the expensive catalogue.
In the further preparations for this text, I discovered that the same exhibition will be opened on September 11 in the Kunsthal in Rotterdam. The website of this museum did provide excellent information about the exhibition.rnFrom which the following quote:
“Magnetic North”
The magic of the northern lights, idyllic landscapes and majestic views of the Arctic: over eighty masterful paintings and thirty sketches show a mythical, imaginary Canada. 'Magnetic North' focuses on the Canadian modernist paintings of artists around the Group of Seven, an artist's collective that is still immensely popular in Canada. At the heart of the exhibition, audio-visual works by the Algonquin-French artist Caroline Monnet and the Anishinaabe filmmaker Lisa Jackson, open up a critical perspective on the paintings. These films by women who are rooted in cultures of the Indigenous peoples of these territories enable us to look at the landscapes by the Group of Seven in a different way.”rnrnThe three photos show, it will not surprise you, the interaction of the visitor and the art
