WITH LATVIA IN MY HEART

WITH LATVIA IN MY HEART

 

Being far away from the place of birth, its landscapes become a particularly fond memory of the most important and nicest place in the world – the motherland. In honour of a patriot, Dietrich André Loeber (04.01.1923 Riga – 24.06.2004 Hamburg) on his 100th celebration, we are exhibiting graphics depicting Riga in his youth. Some of these works decorated the Loeber family’s apartment in Hamburg. Almost all the authors of the works displayed in the exhibition were themselves forced to live abroad, both by leaving their works to those who remained in their homeland, and by continuing the theme of Riga outside of Latvia.
