'The title of this exhibition refers to a work by artist Marcel Broodthaers, La Soupe de Daguerre (1975), an ode to Louis Daguerre, one of the inventors of photography. Since he invented his daguerrotype in the nineteenth century, a host of new ways of producing photographs have been devised. This exhibition presents a sample of this vast ‘soup’ of photographic materials and production techniques from Gemeentemuseum Den Haag’s collection'. One of my works in the museum collection is exhibited here (#367-5, 2014).  a.o. Craigie Horsfield, Gábor Ösz, Popel Comou, Piet Zwart en Rineke Dijkstra.
