During the fifty years of the occupation of Latvia by the Soviet Union, the KGB headquarters in Riga, also known as the “Corner House”, became a prominent symbol of totalitarian power. In 21st century Riga, it still stands to bear testimony to world war, mass persecutions and genocide. 2014 is the right time to change the destiny of the Corner House, to open its doors and face the experiences and fates concealed therein in order to re-create and profoundly understand them.
The Corner House will be open to the public from the 1st of May to the 19th of October, presenting the Occupation Museum’s exhibition (admission free of charge), guided tours “In the KGB Basements”, and five other exhibitions – “(Re)construction of Friendship”, “A Latvian’s Suitcase”, “In Spite of All”, “Stories of People and Power in Ten Objects” and “The Museum of Fateful Objects”, which present different interpretations of the relationship between the individual and power in the past that still affects people in the present day.
