Bertien van Manen — Gluckauf

Bertien van Manen grew up in Heerlen, the former center of the Eastern Mining Region, where her father worked as an engineer for the State Mines. The publication ‘Gluckauf’ brings together work which Bertien made in the mining town of New Sharlston in Great Britain (1980s), and portraits of female miners in the Appalachian Mountains (1980s-2000s), and work made in a mining town in Siberia in the 1990s.
