Over de expositie
‘Civic Virtue’ is an exhibition about a concept that has its origin in ancient times. ‘Civic Virtue’ has periodically made an appearance with each passing century – notably in association with The Dutch, English and French Revolutions. Perhaps the energy of this near-forgotten ideology lies in the design of all the objects around us and the materials of the city – subliminally affecting everything we do.
The exhibition can be considered a minor revival of a fundamental concern for society and the virtues that affect it.
