20 April-3 May. The Netherlands and Alliance éthio-française organise this exhibition, entitled A Dutch Visit to Ethiopia, which describes the journey of the Dutch aristocrat Baron Binnert van Harinxma thoe Slooten and the biologist Gerrit Brouwer, who set sail for Ethiopia in October 1930 to study the country’s wildlife. Their visit coincided with the coronation of emperor Haile Selassie and they were able to witness those historical events. At his return to the Netherlands, van Harinxma wrote a book, entitled Through Abyssinia, while Brouwer, who took hundreds of photographs, kept a journal. This exhibition focuses on these shots, which immortalised nature during the period, some of which no longer exists.
Mon-Fri 09.00-18.00, Sat 09.30-18.00.
