DESCRIPTION

All around a former Izba. Inventing an archive, recording memory and daily life in a village.
This exhibition turns around a former cotton estate, an Izba, the house and the offices of this estate and the former workers camp turned today into a village. Two life-worlds, remnants of the previous landowner’s life styles and today's village.
