Why talk about Riga? Indeed, why? Can everyone have their own, special, unique intimate image of Riga which reflects their individual thoughts, memories and moments of happiness or grief? Since Riga is so varied, ever-changing, vibrant and dynamic from a historical, ethnic and cultural point of view, this exhibition offers a story about Riga – the capital city of Latvia – and fragments of its past which date back to a hundred years ago.
Materials from the collections of the National Library of Latvia and the Museum "Jews in Latvia". The exhibition set up in 2014.
Idea and realization: Dr. art. Deniss Hanovs, Anda Lamaša, Kristīne Liniņa, Marta Dziļuma, Kristīne Robežniece. Graphic design: Artis Tauriņš.
