Exhibition

Location: 3rd floor, B-wing 

The exhibition focuses on Lisa Reihana’s powerful video work In Pursuit of Venus, which represented New Zealand at the Venice Biennale in 2017. The point of departure for In Pursuit of Venus is formed by the visual materials of the 19th century and the colonialist view of nature and colonial populations. Similar examples exist in the Baltic-German pictorial legacy.

Curators: Kadi Polli, Eha Komissarov and Linda Kaljundi.
