Nan Goldin

Good news for the Hasselblad award winner 2007. Her seized photo Klara and Edda belly-dancing (http://judithdenhollander.wordpress.com/2007/09/29/photo-seized-and-debated/ | see my post of 29 September) is not indecent, says the Crown Prosecution Service.

This probably means that I can get to see the photo myself, as my yearly visit to the Hasselblad Center is due next month…*

The awarding of the Hasselblad prize to Nan Goldin took place at Göteborg City Theatre on November 10, 2007. The Award Winner’s exhibition opened at Hasselblad Center in conjunction with the ceremony and will continue until January 13, 2008.

* I was very impressed with Nan Goldin’s work and spent quite some time in the Hasselblad center. (But did not see Klara and Edda belly-dancing as it was not part of the exhibition).
