MYTHOLOGIES – THE BEGINNING AND END OF CIVILIZATIONS
Jani Leinonen is taking part in the exhibition Mythologies – The Beginning and End of Civilizations at ARoS Art Museum in Aarhus, Denmark, opening on April 4th, 2020.
The exhibition attempts to expose the narratives that, through various historical epochs, have sustained society and had a governing influence on communities as well as on war and destruction.
With this exhibition, ARoS seeks to persuade the audience to respond to the mythologies that define and create the framework of the society which we are all part of and contribute to. The fact that myths and narratives are the fabric that still manages to unite us all is one of the principal assertions of the exhibition. By highlighting a number of specific historical points of interest, Mythologies – The Beginning and End of Civilizations will uncover periods where old narratives are discarded and new ones emerge, often via radical ruptures.
The exhibition runs through 4. Apr. 2020 — 18. Oct. 2020
