World War I marked a major turn in the history of the world. It deconstructed the lives of nations and individuals. Helplessness, uncertainty, pain, insecurity. But also patriotism, hope and longing. These emotions were always present in WWI.
This permanent exhibition on Latvians in World War I embraces emotions and creates awareness of WWI and its consequences, both nationally and worldwide. The design team was challenged by the amount of exhibition content and the degree to which they wanted visitors to be emotionally present.
