Collection exhibition REVISITED 2 - Ripples

Water is essential to life on earth and connects us to every living thing, system and element on the planet. Safe drinking water has become an increasingly scarce commodity, exposing serious social inequalities around the world.
In REVISITED, Museum Hilversum presents works from the collection in a new context. A museum collection is constantly evolving, new works are added and sometimes others are removed. The stories behind the artworks, photographs and videos and the moment they are shown can also shift and change the meaning or relevance of the work. This second collection exhibition in the REVISITED series features the 2011 work Neko Harbour by news photographer Raymond Rutting in conjunction with the NOOR Images-initiated project Ripples. A Visual Diary of Water.

Ripples embodies the idea of a chain reaction. It suggests that small actions and events can have far-reaching consequences that spread like ripples in a pond, touching lives and affecting societies from generation to generation. The project exhibition uncovers deeper, nuanced, transnational connections in the world through the overarching theme of water to explore global issues such as the climate crisis, human life and social inequality. At its core, it strives to be both a celebration of this eternal and mysterious element and an accessible and educational assessment of its many roles in the socio-political inequalities of the contemporary world and the urgency and global impact of the impending climate catastrophe.

NOOR, an Amsterdam-based collective of international visual storytellers, has been at the forefront of global, ethical and reliable visual journalism and storytelling for more than 15 years. This exhibition offers a unique collection compiled from NOOR's immense visual archive while pushing the boundaries of sustainable exhibition making. Works by members of the agency create an accessible space that reveals the complex connections between the many functions and interpretations of this essential element in human life.
