An exhibition of recent works by Gerarld Van Der Kaap can be visited at La Virreina Centre de la Imatge (Image Centre). The photographer and cameraman shows its new collection, which is a result of several years living worldwide: Bangkok, Xiamen, Amsterdam and Cap de Creus.

Another series, The Gospel According to Kaap reintereprets The Passion according to Matthew, by J.S. Bach, by children from schools in the outskirts of Amsterdam. The exhibition also includes an unreleased video portrait that Van Der Kaap has done this year in the Cap de Creus. This is a reproduction of the actor Enrique Irazoqui, who played as Jesus 50 years ago in the film The Gospel according to Matthew, by Pasolini.
