With a minimal, stage-like set incorporating only chalk outlines of streets and houses on the floor, Dogville is set in the small, fictional town of Dogville. The film tells the story of Grace Mulligan, a fugitive on the run who must gain the trust of the townspeople to be able to stay. What starts off as Grace’s voluntary participation in the community gives way to an increasingly abusive dynamic. Her presence catalyses dark impulses within the town’s citizens and raises complex issues of morality, accountability, power and human relationships.

“A nameless Egyptian fresco, an African idol or a vase from Crete: we should behold Pirosmani’s art among them. Only this way it is possible to conceive it genuinely … …You see Pirosmani – you believe in Georgia”.

French artist Félix Ziem is one of the most original landscape painters of the 19thcentury. The exhibition Wanderer on the Sea of Light presents Ziem as an artist who left his mark on 19th century painting and who is mostly known for his paintings of Istanbul and Venice, where the city and the sea are intertwined.
