The exhibition ‘Now and Then’ shows photo works by Maarten van der Put and, together with interventions by United Cowboys, this forms a unique collaboration project with Pennings Foundation. 

For four weeks, Maarten van der Put will ‘occupy’ the space of Pennings Foundation on Geldropseweg 63 in Eindhoven with a photography exhibition, combined with installations and performances by the Eindhoven-based company United Cowboys.


Maarten van der Put shows an overview over the years of his practice as a photographer. With portraits that zoom in on what is hidden beneath the surface, combined with photos in which the texture of objects becomes almost tangible, Van der Put shows a world of intimacy that is both sincere and alienating. With these images Van der Put invites the viewer to dive into the momentum and forget the time. His photo works contain multiple layers. It is up to the visitor to make his or her own dialogue with the works.
The performances and installations are developed and executed in the context of the exhibition. A cast of international dancers associated with United Cowboys will be involved in the creation of these interventions. The concepts are by Maarten van der Put and Pauline Roelants. Together they form the artistic team of United Cowboys. Visitors of the exhibition are welcome to witness these creations.


With the photo exhibition as a beating heart, Maarten van der Put is building a world together with United Cowboys. An autarkic biotope, looking for beauty, vulnerability, power and the balance between them. The combination with performances and installations provides an incidental synergy between still image and movement.

The exhibition and the WorkLAB can be visited from Wednesday to Saturday from 12:00 to 17:00. Performances are performed during the weekends.
