The Lieven Gevaert Centre mourns the passing of Allan Sekula (1951-2013).
Since 2004, Sekula and the LGC had developed an intense collaborative relationship, which resulted in publications, exhibitions, and a symposium that was held in honor of his work (September 2005). Sekula and the LGC were working on a new book publication about his last project, entitled Ship of Fools / The Dockers’ Museum (2010-2013). This publication will now be completed in his absence, and is scheduled to appear in the Lieven Gevaert Series in 2014. The Centre expresses its sincere condolences to Allan Sekula’s widow, Sally Stein, and to his family.
