The publication titled Art Exhibition Libertat is a commemorative book on the exhibition that took place from August 3 till December 13, 2013. In Libertat, commemorating the 150th anniversary of Emancipation, 20 participants gave their own vision on the theme. Slavery, emancipation and present time slavery were expressed in paintings, installations and three dimensional pieces. In the book the 20 participants are listed, with an image of their artwork and a short biography and/or artist statement.
The texts are written by Helen de Haas and the publication has been made possible through support by Foundation Arte ’99 pa libertat, Mondriaan Fonds, Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds Caribisch Gebied and Maduro & Curiel’s Bank N.V.
