Portable Landscapes: Unweaving the Iron Curtain

Portable Landscapes: Unweaving the Iron Curtain is part of the Latvian Centre for Contemporary Art project Portable Landscapes which examines stories of exiled and emigree Latvian artists locating them within the broader context of 20th century art history, and wider processes of migration and globalization. The exhibition and program in collaboration with District Berlin shows artistic and political expressions of diaspora and dissidence that cross, unsettled, unweave the binary geopolitical divisions referred to as Iron Curtain, both during the Cold War and its aftermath.

The exhibition runs until 25 July and is accompanied by a diaspora and dissidence reading group.
