Hawai'i revisited

 

 

The James-Cook-Collection Göttingen meets contemporary art
3 October 2018 - 5 May 2019


The Linden-Museum Stuttgart presents the exhibition “Hawai‘i revisited: The James-Cook-Collection Göttingen meets contemporary art“ from 3 October 2018 until 5 May 2019.

In 1959, Hawai'i officially became the 50th U.S. state. Up until 1893, the island posed a confident kingdom, whose last queen was dethroned with the support of the United States, despite her people's fierce resistance. To the present day, independence is still a major political long-term goal for many Hawaiians. The exhibition links important objects of the 18th century from the Cook-/Forster-Collection of the University Göttingen to contemporary art from the collection of the Linden-Museum Stuttgart.

Admission: EUR 4.00/3.00 incl. permanent exhibitions
