The Tropics: Views from the Middle of the Globe
Paradise or threatening jungle; place of refuge or place of damnation? This exhibition investigates the myth of 'The Tropics' through the juxtaposition of contemporary and pre-modern artworks. Curated by Prof Dr Viola König, Dr Peter Junge and Alfons Hug, and brought to the Iziko South African National Gallery by the Goethe-Institute, this exhibition will, for the first time, show rare pre-modern art from the Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, Ethnologisches Museum, in South Africa. The contemporary component of the exhibition includes photography, video-works and paintings from Germany, Spain, Brazil, Great Britain, Vietnam, Indonesia, Peru and South Africa.
