Imagined Places

Imagined Places is an exhibition curated by Anke Bangma at the Tropenmuseum, Amsterdam. The show opened on 12 December and will be up until 14 April 2013. The theme and content of the exhibition are extremely relevant for Re:place, and we look forward to visiting Amsterdam and seeing it in the course of the spring!

"Does a person's location determine their identity? Imagined Places is not about the significance of physical place, it is about our connection with other places. Adrian Paci, Zineb Sedira, Bouchra Khalili, Claudia Cristovao and Ho-Yeol Ryu present photos and video installations depicting real and imaginary places, chosen and unchosen journeys. Imagined Places is about the desire to be somewhere else and the reality of forced migration.

This exhibition was compiled by Anke Bangma, curator of contemporary art at the Tropenmuseum since 2011. Imagined Places appears in Park Hall and the Group Room at the Tropenmuseum from 12 December 2012 to 14 April 2013."
