Article publié le 7 February 2023

A presentation of these works is proposed to examine how individuals react to tragedies that take place in their vicinity. The exhibition, together with the history of the Riga ghetto, is part of a larger project “Art and the Holocaust: Reflections on a Common Future”. The Latvian artist Belcova conceived these works as a therapy for the vision of the Shoah. Upon her death in 1981, Belcova’s works were bequeathed by her family to the Latvian National Art Museum.
