New Dutch Views
About New Dutch Views
So, Marwan Bassiouni started the series ‘New Dutch Views’ as a graduation project and has since developed it further. However, now it appears as a book with many new photographs and autobiographical reflections, published on the occasion of an exhibition at the Fotomuseum in The Hague. Bassiouni visited polders, industrial areas, small villages, inner cities, and outlying suburbs throughout the Netherlands to capture typical views framed by mosque windows. The result is a powerful visual experience, a mixed representation of identity, society, and the portrayal of Islam in Western culture. Moreover, it is a rebuttal from the perspective of Dutch Muslims of Islam’s often negative perception.
