Published on the occasion of the exhibition "Willem de Rooij - Intolerance," held at the Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin, 18 September, 2010 - 2 January, 2011.

"Intolerance consists of a temporary installation and a publication, both conceived by Willem de Rooij for the Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin. The installation Intolerance confronts a group of paintings by seventeenth-century Dutch artist Melchior d'Hondecoeter with a group of pre-1900 feathered objects from Hawai'i. The publication consists of three volumes: Intolerance documents the installation as it was shown at the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin. Melchior d'Hondecoeter (1636-1695) is a comprehensive publication on the work of Melchior d'Hondecoeter. Hawaiian featherwork is a catalogue raisonné of all pre-1900 Hawaiian feathered-god images, helmets, capes and cloaks." - back cover.
