Hi everybody, I want to invite you to a guided tour (in English) from Brasilea through 2 exhibitions: "Between two homelands - Entre duas pátrias is a four-part exhibition series. In the first one BRASILEA's founder Walter Wüthrich accompanies you on his emigration adventure. For the first time, BRASILEA is presenting an exhibition based on historical and biographical research. It features large-format pictures, videos, audio clips and interactive elements for all ages.
"Dreaming the Forest" is a photo exhibition with selected images by the award-winning Brazilian photojournalist Victor Moriyama. The exhibition develops in 5 chapters, allowing the viewers to follow the ways in which once rich and vibrant rainforest, inhabited and supported by its people, is being destroyed by fires that “clean” the land for cattle, illegal logging, and soya cultivation that exhausts once rich soil. What is left when farmers and the loggers leave, is an empty desert. A curated selection of several dozens of Moriyama’s photos will be complemented with video works, an immersive audio installation, and a specially commissioned video interview with the photographer. The exhibition was curated by Kateryna Botanova.
After the tour in the exhibitions we can enjoy the small apero (1 drink and snacks).
I hope I will see you there!
