September 25 – October 20, 2018
The Focus Kazakhstan Berlin exhibition Bread and Roses examines the work of four generations of Kazakh woman artists created since 1945. The exhibition, and its related artist residency program, with nearly 30 artists offers a fresh perspective on both modern and contemporary Kazakh art and culture. It proposes a broader model for considering art made by women in other post-Soviet and post-colonial contexts.
