"Rich Man, Poor Man, Beggar Man, Thief". This is the title of the exhibition that the Círculo de Bellas Artes (Fine Arts Circle) is hosting of the work of Jorge Molder, the Portuguese photographer. The exhibition, sponsored by the EDP Foundation, features nearly 50 photos selected by the artist from the most important series from 1990 to the present. The exhibition will be open to the public in the Picasso Room from 5 February to 17 May, from 11.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m. and from 5.00 p.m. to 9.00 pm. from Tuesday to Sunday.

It is an anthological exhibition, where the series have been redesigned by Molder for the occasion, and which is included in the forthcoming International Contemporary Art Fair (ARCO). Some of the photos have never been on show before, which allows the artist from Lisbon to be rediscovered.

The exhibition will include two lectures. On the day of the opening, Thursday 5 February, Alberto Ruiz de Samaniego, the cultural critic, will give a lecture on the artist, entitled the Black Theatre of Jorge Molder, at 7.00 p.m. The German Historian, Hans Belting, has been asked to give the second lecture to close the exhibition.

Jorge Molder (Lisbon, 1947) studied philosophy, but soon opted to earn his living by photography. Molder’s work is noted for his intervention in his pieces, where he is a spectator and critic of himself and of the surrounding universes. His work is related to other arts, including painting, sculpture or literature. In 2010, he received the EDP Foundation Art Grand Prix, one of the most important awards in the visual arts field in Portugal. To mark this award, Molder put on the exhibition currently being hosted by the Círculo de Bellas Artes at the National Contemporary Art Museum in Lisbon, under the title of Jorge Molder. Rei capitão soldado ladrão.
