Photo exhibition Out of focus
The Volkskundemuseum is developing a programme of displays, events and activities for people with dementia and their carers. One of the characteristics of dementia is that memories become increasingly vague and eventually disappear. The Japanese word 'bokeh' not only means hazy and blurred, but is also the term for dementia. This idea was the starting point for the students of the Bruges Photo House (Bruges Municipal Academy for Fine Arts, Part-time Art Education) to offer their visual interpretation of the 'dementia' theme. The results can be seen in the garden and on the windows of the Volkskundemuseum. The out of focus photos seek to mirror the blurring of memories, the loss of orientation and the elusiveness of the world around us.
