At Leopold Museum in Vienna, the exhibition “Foreign Gods” allows African and Oceanic art to enter into a dialogue with select works by protagonists of classical Modernism. The presentation calls to mind Europe’s exotic art adventure and its impact on the avant-garde, the fascination art from “ foreign “ cultures reflected in numerous works of classical Modernism. There is a dialogue that the masks and figures enter into with works by Pablo Picasso, Constantin Brancusi, Emil Nolde and Max Ernst.

At its height, the British Empire was the largest empire in history and the most influential global power. Originating with a few overseas possessions and trading posts, it grew to encompass dominions, colonies and protectorates rule and administrated by the United Kingdom. In 1922 the Empire covered almost a quarter of the world's total land area; by the end of the century it had diminished to just a few overseas territories. During this contraction, " Empire " became a highly provocative term. Its history of war, conquest and appropriation is difficult, even painful, to address but its legacy is everywhere: not just in public monuments, but in social structures, culture and in the fault lines of contemporary global politics.

Two women are holding a man down on a bed. One presses her fist against his head, so he can’t raise it from the mattress, while her companion pins his torso in place. They are well-built with powerful arms but even so it takes their combined strength to keep their victim immobilised as one of them cuts through his throat with a sword. Blood spurts from deep red geysers as she saws. Her victim’s eyes are wide open. He knows exactly what is happening to him.
