  • Rembrandt, habibi!

In her podcast “Rembrandt, habibi,” which is well worth listening to, political journalist Amina Aziz examines the Dutch Baroque painter and his time with a postcolonial eye. For ZDF Aspekte, we join her on a visit to the exhibition “Rembrandt’s Orient” to look at the art of the public favorite and his contemporaries with irreverence, rather than reverence, for a change. For Rembrandt, artist at the center of a brutally expanding colonial regime, created a strange, fictional image of the Orient with his paintings. How should, how must one deal with it today? A television report for ZDF Aspekte.
