MUSEUM

Simple as ABC #3:
The Wild Hunt

2019 / ROBIN vzw

 

What would happen if we were to build a human hunting museum? 

What would it look like, who would be in there & what would hang on the walls?  

Simple as ABC #3: The Wild Hunt is an audio exhibition that unravels contemporary practices of human hunting. It wonders who is hunting whom and how, who is watching and how clear-cut or reversible such categories are. Based on their intimate knowledge, experts from around the Mediterranean were invited to each contribute one hunting scene to the museum’s collection. In Arabic, Farsi, French and Greek, their voices guide the visitor around the images etched on their retinas.

SELECTED FOR THE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL ROTTERDAM 2014 / WIENER FESTWOCHEN 2014 / HET THEATERFESTIVAL 2014 / FAST FORWARD FESTIVAL 2016 / WIESBADEN BIENNALE 2016 / FESTIVAL DE MARSEILLE & MUCEM 2018

 

Domo de Eŭropa Historio en Ekzilo (‘House of European History in Exile’) takes you more than half a century back in time to the early twenty-first century. Although little-studied, this period nevertheless provided the breeding-ground for the sweeping changes that were to take place during our century. It was a remarkable era, characterised by Integration and Harmonisation. Blessed by the Long Peace. Overshadowed by the Great Recession. Back when national borders were blurred and people everywhere used a single currency called the ‘euro’. Back when Brussels, not Warsaw, lay at the beating heart of the old continent.

 

The first international exhibition on life in the former European Union.
