Four autonomous spaces –curated by artists and activists– open up new perspectives on the theme of the exhibition.
The Nigerian artist Peju Layiwola reflects on the debates about looted cultural objects from the Kingdom of Benin (Nigeria) by means of the RJM’s Benin Collection, referring to the current #BlackLivesMatter movement. Namibian activists Esther Utjiua Muinjangue and Ida Hoffmann address the genocide of the Herero and Nama people in Namibia. Hungarian curator Tímea Junghaus has invited Sinti and Roma artists to address the struggle for self-determination. Finally, the Cologne post-migrant association In-Haus e.V. denounces colonial continuities.
