Taavi Talve. I Was in Timbuktu

Taavi Talve’s exhibition I Was in Timbuktu discusses images projected into an unexplored corner of the world and colonial conquest. One such story is told by Werner Legère in his novel I Was in Timbuktu, which appeared in Estonian in 1959 as part of the Adventure Stories from Land and Sea (Seiklusjutte maalt ja merelt) book series and sparked the imagination of many young readers, who later began to question the actual existence of Timbuktu.
