    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.
