The Tukku Magi Project is dedicated to bringing together creative expressions from cultures across the globe and presenting them in their uniqueness and interaction, avoiding labeling and direct comparison. Its mission is to reshape perceptions of traditional art, bringing it as an equal partner into modern artistic life. The mission of the Tukku Magi Project is to create a unique multi-cultural museum in Latvia—the first of its kind in Northern Europe.
The ''Bez Fetiša/Without Fetish” exhibition is the first event leading towards Tukku Magi goal bringing global traditional and contemporary art together in dialogue.
A “fetish” is an object believed to have supernatural powers, and, in particular, a human-made object that has power over others. The TUKKU MAGI Project repudiates this and all such conceptions of cultural hierarchy.
The “Bez Fetiša/Without Fetish” exhibition took place on August 20-25, 2019 at Rumene Manor, Kandava parish, Latvia.
