Anoek Steketee - Stateless

Document Nederland is an annual exhibition where the Rijksmuseum asks a Dutch photographer to focus on one topical societal issue. Worldwide, an estimated 10 million people are stateless, with no official nationality, no passport and no rights, so this year photographer Anoek Steketee has been commissioned to depict statelessness. Previous photographers have included Hans Aarsman (1984), Dana Lixenberg (2011), Henk Wildschut (2013), Hans van der Meer (2015) and Carel van Hees (2016). Statelessness will be on in the Philips Wing at the Rijksmuseum from 6 October to 7 January.
