    CURATORS´ GUIDED TOUR
    “Entre Terra e Mar. Between Land and Sea. Transatlantic Art”
    With Dr. Mona Suhrbier
    CURATORS´ GUIDED TOUR

    Entre Terra e Mar. Between Land and Sea. Transatlantic Art

    Curator Dr. Mona Suhrbier talks about the working process with Ayrson Heráclito and Rigo23 (participating artists of the exhibition) and guides through the exhibition “Entre Terra e Mar. Between Land and Sea. Transatlantic Art” out ouf the perspective of a curator.


    The Weltkulturen Museum is presenting contemporary interventions and works fusing the political and lyrical by the internationally renowned artists Ayrson Heráclito and Rigo 23. The exhibition is the culmination of the museum’s many years of activities and research investigating the Afro-Brazilian and indigenous aspects of Brazil’s art and culture, and it provides a new impetus in present perceptions of transatlantic art processes between Africa, Europe and America. This is especially evident in the artists’ encounters with objects from the museum’s South America and Africa collections. Their selection of objects, which are also on show in the exhibition, offers a fascinating insight into their own concerns and interests.

    “The gift of poetry: rap as expression of indigenous identity”
    With Arno Holl (research assistent and ethnologist)


    Usually one doesn´t associate rap music with Brazilian indigenous peoples. Yet in recent years Guaraní Hip Hop acts made it even on national television. The tour will track the connection between Guaraní traditions and the medium of Hip Hop by means of exhibits and installations in the current exhibition.

    WORKSHOP WITH EXHIBITION TOUR
    ”May the Orixá be with you!”
    WORKSHOP WITH EXHIBITION TOUR

    May the Orixá be with you!


    The Orixá, the deities in the Candomblé religion in Brazil, all have different qualities - Ogum, for example, the Orixá of iron, stands for technology and logical thought; in contrast, Yemanjá, the Orixá of the sea, plays a dominant yet also protective role. What other Orixá are there and which qualities and stories are associated with them? And why were the Orixá forbidden for so many years - and yet still survive today? We want to find out how the followers of the Candomblé religion can pacify and strengthen their Orixá, and what the Orixá offer people in return. Is it possible to find a personal helper to support and help us in the ups and downs of everyday life?

    CONSERVATORS´ GUIDED TOUR
    With Mareike Mehlis and Kristina Werner (conservators)
    “Will that last?”
    CONSERVATORS´ GUIDED TOUR



    “Will that last?”







    How can works with paint turning powdery be conserved without touching them? How can leaves be preserved before they wilt? And how do you conserve dried meats that are not all that dry? The Weltkulturen Museum’s conservators offer an insight into their work and constructing a rather unusual exhibition. Kristina Werner holds an M.A. in the restoration and conservation of art and cultural artefacts from the University of Cologne, and has specialised in objects made of wood and modern materials.
