Kirsten Bosma (b.1998) graduated in 2020 from the Royal Academy of Arts, The Hague (NL). In my practice, I explore hidden or invisible structures of power. Structures that are weaved into banal systems, geopolitical infrastructure and everyday human mass movement. My work positions itself in the realm of ‘aesthetic journalism’ — implying a critical use of documentary techniques and journalistic methods which can open up the mechanisms of art and media. It is thus research based, in depth and simultaneously speaking of real world topics as well as reflecting on the medium of photography. I pursue the desire to understand the complexities of power, in order to provide glimpses of comprehension.
And this all, to increase the ability to engage, which is key to our democracy.
