Postponed: Willem de Rooij "PIERRE VERGER IN SURINAME" at Portikus

Information2 – 30 November 2020Portikus, Alte Brücke 2 / Maininsel, 60594 Frankfurt am Main
Design: Ronnie FueglisterDesign: Ronnie Fueglister

Due to the new measurements in connection with the COVID-19 virus, the exhibition Pierre Verger in Suriname by Willem de Rooij is postponed until further notice.

Stay healthy and be in contact for any questions: info@portikus.de.

The core of the installation Pierre Verger in Suriname is a suite of 257 images that were made by French photographer and ethnologist Pierre Verger (Paris, 1902–Salvador da Bahia, 1996) during his eight-day trip to Suriname in 1948. Through his journeys as photojournalist Verger became interested in the relationship between the cultures of the African Diaspora and those of West Africa. When he settled in Salvador da Bahia in the late 1940s, he began to focus especially on Afro-Brazilian culture, depicting the practice of religious rites, an interest that would eventually become the focus of his life’s work.

Pierre Verger in Suriname now makes this particular group of photographs accessible to a wider audience for the first time through a new installation at Portikus and an accompanying publication.
