Between 1862 en 1968, right where the provincial house of the Province of South Holland now stands, there used to be a zoo. It did not only have animals, but all sorts of events were organised there as well. This week the exhibition Art and the zoo of The Hague is opening in the provincial house. A number of works referring to the zoo, taken from the collection of the province, are on display. Other works have been placed by association, as a counterpart to historical photographic material of the zoo. The alternating exhibitions are part of the province’s new art policy, that QKunst helps implement.
