Minouk Lim’s It’s a name I gave myself and Mom are now being showcased in the exhibition Home and the World at the Museum Van Loon, Amsterdam.

 

Home and the World is an exhibition of contemporary art curated by guest curator and art historian Thomas J. Berghuis, set within the historical context of Museum Van Loon. Fourteen artists from around the world explore the intricate connections between colonialism and nationalism. The concept of the ‘nation-state’ evolved in Europe and spread globally throughout the 19th and 20th centuries. This concept often resulted in borders that did not accurately reflect existing ways of coexistence: the nation-state is not the only form of societal organization, and alternative ways for humanity to feel at home in the world exist. In Home and the World, participating artists present these alternatives.”
