    “GREEN SKY, BLUE GRASS. Colour Coding Worlds”

    with Berit Mohr

    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, Berit Mohr shows how perception of colour sometimes differs enormously depending on the language and culture involved.

    HYBRID EXHIBITION OPENING

    Δ HYBRID EXHIBITION OPENING

    “Invisible Inventories: Questioning Kenyan Collections in Western Museums”

    We are delighted that we can invite you to join us online for the hybrid opening of the exhibition “Invisible Inventories: Questioning Kenyan Collections in Western Museums”.

    ***You can watch the live broadcast of the exhibition opening here.***

    How can we make Kenyan cultural assets that are possessed by institutions in the Global North accessible to present-day Kenyan society?

    Since 2018, this question has been addressed by the International Inventories Programme (IIP), which brings together Kenyan and European artists and scholars. The core aim of the project is to develop a database of all Kenyan objects in European and North American museums. Following exhibitions in Nairobi (18.3.–30.5.2021) and Cologne (28.5.–29.8.2021), the visualisation of this database will now be presented in the Weltkulturen Museum along with further scholarly and artistic contributions.

    As well as negotiating issues about restitution, a forum will be created for addressing individual objects from intellectual and emotional points of view. The exhibition also deals with the psychological and political consequences of the loss or absence of certain objects from the societies in which they were created. Perspectives and voices from Kenya are central to the approach taken at the Weltkulturen Museum. There are works on show by artist collectives The Nest and SHIFT, interviews with members of local Kenyan societies, footage from the discussions organised by the project, and the results of joint research on objects from the collection. In order to highlight the diverse range of opinions about how these objects should be presented, the artist collectives will redesign a room of the exhibition during its runtime: this will turn the museum display itself into a subject for debate.


    1. Participating scholars and artists:
      The Nest Collective: Jim Chuchu, Njoki Ngumi (Kenya)
      SHIFT collective: Sam Hopkins (Kenya/Germany), Marian Nur Goni (France), Simon Rittmeier (Germany)
      Nairobi National Museum: Lydia Nafula, Philemon Nyamanga, George Juma Ondeng’, Njeri Gachihi, Lydia Galavu and the Tuzi collective (Kenia)
      Rautenstrauch-Joest-Museum: Clara Himmelheber (Germany)
      Weltkulturen Museum: Julia Friedel, Leonie Neumann, Frauke Gathof (Germany)





    ***THE OPENING WILL BE BROADCASTET LIVE ON HTTPS://WWW.WELTKULTURENMUSEUM.DE/DE/MUSEUM/EROEFFNUNG-IIP/***

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.

    LIVE WORKSHOP FOR FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN

    Δ LIVE WORKSHOP FOR FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN

    “Satourday: 6,000 collectors”

    with Iris Loew

    The objects in the Weltkulturen Museum were collected by over 6,000 individuals and then handed over to the museum. Why, where and how did they “collect” all these things? What do we learn today about the people they belonged to before that?

    In the Labor exhibition Ausstellung “Invisible Inventories: Questioning Kenyan Collections in Western Museums” we explore all these questions and discover what this “collecting” is all about.
