Dutch DareDutch Dare is being published to accompany the exhibition at the Australian Centre for Photography in Sydney, which will run from 19 October to 2 December 2006, in the context of 'Dutch Dare', the cultural programme marking 400 years of relations between the Netherlands and Australia. The exhibition is an initiative of the Mondriaan Foundation and has been compiled by Frits Gierstberg.

Dutch Dare is an up-to-date overview of 16 photographers and visual artists from the Netherlands; some world-famous, others from younger generations and not (yet) globally renowned. This publication reveals the outspoken and peculiar character of contemporary Dutch photography and video, presenting in the process a fascinating artistic vision of Dutch society.
Dutch Dare demonstrates that the Netherlands is no longer the country of tulips, cheese and clogs in a fresh survey of contemporary Dutch photography.
The photographs that the compiler Frits Gierstberg has selected for the book offer a new perspective on contemporary Dutch society. The book includes work by Gerco de Ruijter, Marnix Goosens, Roy Villevoye, Hans van der Meer, Elspeth Diederix, Gertjan Kocken, Julika Rudelius, Jaap Scheren, Anouk Kruithof, Martine Stig, Viviane Sassen, Marike Schuurman and Useful Photography.
