    Δ ***CANCELLED***“RED IN FOCUS”

    Theme related guided tour with Oliver Hahn (research assistent Oceania collection)

    In many cultures, the colour red plays a significant role in the way people see the world, whether it is painted on their bodies for beautification and protection, or serves as a sacred colour, or features in the material culture. Consequently, it is a colour that also appears in many different sections of the exhibition “GREEN SKY, BLUE GRASS. Colour Coding Worlds”. 

    Oliver Hahn guides through the exhibiton. He investigates the meaning of red as a colour in various cultures by looking at case studies from the Amazon region, New Guinea and Polynesia.

    Δ SESSION #1 ***FULLY BOOKED***

    SHIFT collective in conversation with Nora Al-Badri and Brian Njenga

    “Shaping the Void? The potential and challenges of digital 3D models to re-imagine museum collections”

    SHIFT invites Nora Al-Badri and Brian Njenga for a public discussion on the intersection of 3D modelling, activism, digital reproduction, access, ownership and museums.

    Brian Njenga, is a 3D artist with a background in graphic design and games and has created a virtual museum of Kenyan objects of cultural heritage which are no longer in Kenya. This currently exists as a beta version, The Heritage Project (2021). 

    Nora Al-Badri is a research-based, conceptual artist whose practice explores the emancipatory potential of new technologies to open public, political discussions. Often these projects provoke questions about extractivism, the location and ownership of objects of cultural heritage, such as The Other Nefertiti (2015) and Fossil Futures (2017).

    Both positions differ in terms of their fields of engagement, the nature of their expertise and the place from which they work and disseminate their expressions (Berlin, Nairobi). 

    SHIFT (Sam Hopkins, Marian Nur Goni, Simon Rittmeier) is a transnational collective working on the intersection of art and research, particularly on issues related to African objects diaspora in the aftermath of colonialism.

    Nora Al-Badri and Brian Njenga will join the event virtually.


    As part of the exhibition “Invisible Inventories: Questioning Kenyan Collections in Western Museums”



    The session is followed by the highlight guided tour with Eric Otieno Sumba.

    “GREEN SKY, BLUE GRASS. Colour Coding Worlds”

    with Iris Loew

    Our world is full of colour, but do all cultures see it in the same way? While the scientific basis for perception is identical for everyone, light waves can’t really explain how we name our impressions of colour, the number (and kind) of categories we divide these colours into, or the meanings and associations we ascribe to them.

    Touring the exhibition, Iris Loew shows how perception of colour sometimes differs enormously depending on the language and culture involved.

    Δ LIVE WORKSHOP FOR FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN

    “Sky Blue, Crocodile Green, Lemon Yellow”

    The world of colours is truly thrilling. What colours are there and where do we find them? In nature we come across colours wherever we look: in plants, in the animal kingdom, and in rocks and minerals. Berries dye our hands red or blue. Colours can also be seen in many different combinations on animals: for example on a butterfly’s wings, the feathers of birds, and the skin and fur of various creatures.

    We will discover all the colours in the exhibition “GREEN SKY, BLUE GRASS. Colour Coding Worlds”. After that we will produce our own colours from natural materials.
