Walter Kohn: an honourable man

We were so pleased to present this talk by Elizabeth Sissi Gill. In 2014 Sissi resolved to investigate her maternal grandfather’s shadowy past, a mission that took her to Vienna, the US – and to La Paz, where newspapers from the 1930s revealed an extraordinary story of an unjust accusation of murder, a 10-year prison sentence and a hero’s death fighting for Bolivia in the Chaco War.

Virtual talk – Fernando Montes: New art museum for la paz

The Fernando Montes Museum opened in La Paz, Bolivia in January 2019. It exhibits a permanent collection of paintings and drawings by one of Bolivia’s most distinguished artists. John Montes, the artist’s son and co-curator of the Museum spoke about the artist’s life and art and the creation of the Museum.
