Exhibition opening: Where do we come from - where are we going?
Wed, 6 April, 7 pm / Gallery Raskolnikow (free entry)
Caroline Monnet, who is also curating this year's Focus Québec, is not only an exceptionally successful filmmaker, she is also one of Canada's hottest artists at the moment. In addition to her own identity in the field of tension between indigenous and European roots, her work focuses on the (post-) colonial dynamics between North America and Europe as well as the representation of First Nation communities and the survival of their cultures in today's society. A selection of current video installations will be shown.
