Official website of the Hermann Geiger Cultural Foundation, a non-profit association concerned with culture and social commitment which works to promote awareness of the values of life and peace, dignity and human progress among peoples.
The culture of the Inuit people – previously called Eskimos – had, and in a way still has, entirely original anthropological features characterized by harsh living conditions and age-old customs stemming from a difficult though perfect process of adaptation. The exhibition We Inuit. The people of the Arctic cold, staged by the Geiger Foundation and curated by the Art Director, Alessandro Schiavetti, offers a cross-section of Inuit traditional everyday life, with particular focus on livelihood activities such as fishing and hunting, transport means and entertainment, games and dances, and the beliefs linked to Arctic myths and legends. Ethnographic materials of great historical and artistic importance will be displayed, including clothing, work tools, hunting weapons, transport means, toys, household items and cult objects as well as art and statuettes in different materials, which were the results of the explorations and ethnographic research work carried out across Canada, Greenland and Alaska during the period stretching approximately from the late 19th century up to about the 1970s.
