Rossella Biscotti @Gropius Bau

Discover Rossella Biscotti’s Buru Works at the latest Gropius Bau exhibition Indigo Waves and Other Stories.

Inspired by The Buru Quartet (1980-1988), a literary series by Pramoedya Ananta Toer that recounts stories of oppression and dissent set in South-East Asia which explore how nationhood has been narrated through the bodies of women, Biscotti produced a series of rubber-based pieces, each embodying a character’s history.

The exhibition traces links between the Asian and African regions, manifesting overlays and diasporic transfers between two areas of increased global political, economic and cultural importance in the 21st century.

Indigo Waves and Other Stories is on view until August 13, 2023. Don’t miss it!
