The Frans Hals Museum is hosting the premier solo Anna Bella Geiger exhibition in the Netherlands, in collaboration with SMAK in Ghent and MASP in Sao Paulo.

Anna Bella Geiger (Rio de Janeiro, 1933) is considered one of the most influential contemporary Brazilian artists. She was one of Latin America’s first conceptual artists and a pioneer in video art. She also makes etchings, engravings, sculptures and collages, often mixing techniques.

Geiger’s extensive oeuvre spans more than 60 years and reflects her broad social engagement as the daughter of immigrants in Brazil (a country with colonial roots and deep social divides) during the dictatorship (1964-1985) and emerging emancipation of women and minorities.

The questions that Geiger poses in her work are now more topical than ever. The Frans Hals Museum intends using this exhibition to challenge visitors to look differently at contemporary issues, such as who does this country (colonialism) or body (the position of women in society) belong to?
