Goethe-Institut Hongkong is pleased to join hands with the Netherlands Consulate General in Hong Kong and Macao in presenting the contemporary Dutch photography exhibition "NL Imagined" at the Institut's Goethe-Gallery and Black Box Studio from January 19 to March 2, 2024.

Curated by Yining He and Ruben Lundgren, "NL Imagined" features the works of 11 established and emerging artists, who all currently live and work in the Netherlands (NL). The exhibition showcases the artists' responses to contemporary topics concerning the history, society, and culture of the Netherlands. These combine to a new dialogue between history and the present, between today's reality and what local audiences might imagine about the Netherlands.

Through a wide array of creative approaches, the participating artists capture the architecture of sacred places, look at nature, community and everyday life, together with topics of colonization, personal identity, and kinship, as topics for reflection.

In addition to the exhibition itself, there will be a variety of lectures and workshops featuring artists and curators from both the Netherlands and Hong Kong:
