Artist Talk on Exhibition “Migration and Identity”

Sat 27 Feb 2016, 7 pm

Goethe Institut

56-58 Nguyen Thai Hoc, Ba Dinh, Hanoi

In the context of the exhibition “Migration and Identity”, the artists Duong Thuy Duong (Berlin) and Do Tuan Anh (Solingen), who live and work in Germany, present paintings which deal with migration issues in many different ways.

With the number of immigrants in Europe being higher than ever, migration is a highly topical issue particularly in Germany. However, the immigration of Vietnamese people into Germany has a long tradition and is considered to be a success story: Vietnamese people are often described as one of the best integrated immigrant communities in Germany. What does this adjustment mean for the identity of the migrated people?

In their artistic work, Duong Thuy Duong and Do Tuan Anh deal with migration and identity issues in various ways. As part of an artist talk, they will discuss these topics together with the audience on the 27th of February.
