“Intolerance” is a new work conceived by Dutch artist Willem de Rooij (*1969). Developed especially for the Neue Nationalgalerie, it consists of a large, temporary installation and a three-part publication. “Intolerance” confronts a group of 17th century Dutch bird-paintings by Melchior d’Hondecoeter with a group of 18th and 19th century feathered objects from Hawai’i.
