In conjunction with our temporary exhibition Gauguin and the Voyage to the Exotic (9th October 2012 – 13th January 2013), the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum ran a lecture series entitled Visions of Paradiseorganised by Juby Bustamente. A carefully chosen group of writers and celebrities talk to us about travel, the exotic, and the fascination with those around us. These talks undoubtedly give our audience new and enriching insights on these issues. In the lecture given by the writer Juan Goytisolo, titled The quest for the exotic: from Orientalism to Tahiti., he shares his perspectives on theme Visions of Paradisewith us.
