Lost in the Tropics

Following the highly successful presentations in Brasilia and Rio de Janeiro, with more than half a million visitors, a considerably extended version of the "The Tropics: Views from the Middle of the Globe" exhibition is on view until January 5, 2009 at Martin-Gropius-Bau, a prestigious museum in Berlin. The joint project of the Goethe-Institut and the Ethnological Museum Berlin spans an arch from the premodern, precolonial times up to contemporary artistic positions, proposing "to explore in troubled times the currents of energy and subtle discords between the hemispheres, to show which cultural forces are working in harmony and which in opposition to one another. The exhibition aims to create an incorruptible, crisis-resistant stock of images that permits a non-hierarchical view of the world.
 
The exhibition is structured around seven main, mythically charged themes, each of them bringing together contemporary artworks and museum's exhibits:

1.       After the Deluge (nature and landscapes)
2.       Life is Short (images of people, portraits, ancestors)
3.       The Broken Arrow (power and conflicts)
4.       The Colours of the Birds (colours and abstractions of the tropics)
5.       The Forbidden Laughter (sound and music of the tropics)
6.       Tropical Baroque
7.       Urban Drama
 
Navin Production's Lost in the City is included in the Urban Drama section.
