Usually, I don't post pictures from shows in the USA. Especially in NYC there are countless events with fantastic art works. But since the dutch photographer Rineke Dijkstra is one of my favourite artists, I would recommend all American readers to quickly visit the Guggenheim Museum to see her mid-career retrospective show, which contains several series of her favourite topic: teenagers. And everyone else: we need to settle for her strong pictures in digital version for now and hope that the restrospective will tour to Europe as well.
