From September 8th until January 28th Rijksmuseum Twenthe organizes a large manifestation concerning the question ‘who does the land belong to?’. With this theme, the museum connects to one of the most pressing social issues of today: the handling and future of the rural area. Besides an extensive public program, the manifestation consists of three different exhibitions bringing together ancient and contemporary works of art to portray how (Western) man has appropriated and cultivated the land over the past centuries. Vanmechelen is invited to present his Cosmopolitan Chicken Project, as a strong message against our focus on monoculture.
