The core of this exhibition is an endeavour of 8 Russian and 8 Dutch contemporary artists to analyze and reflect upon some aspects of today’s Russian society, culture, and history. All artists have created new work for this project.

Dutch participants: Daya Cahen, Aliona van der Horst, Natasja Kensmil, Paul Kooiker, Ine Lamers, Paulien Oltheten, Marjan Teeuwen, Jasmijn Visser.

Holland and Russia have long and fruitful historic ties, yet collaboration and exchange in the field of contemporary art have not been developed intensely. Having a sincere interest in Russian art and culture, curators of VoTH want
to discover whether contemporary art can act as a binding force. The long-term aim of this travelling exhibition is to realize artistic and cultural exchange on the highest possible level.
