- About the Life and Work of the artist Jussuf Abbo.
Dorothea Schöne, curator and director at Kunsthaus Dahlem, talks about the moving biography of the sculptur Jussuf Abbo, whose work is included in the exhibition „New/Old Homeland“ .
Despite various efforts by museum directors and curators, no exhibition could be realized in Germany during his lifetime.
The talk describes Abbo’s early years and how exile forced an abrupt end to a promising career.
