“Mining Collections - Some configurations of African Modernisms in institutional collections”


 


This final public symposium brings together the international researchers of the project “African


Art History and the Formation of a Modern Aesthetic”. Since 2016, they have been engaged with


three collections of African modernism: Makerere Art Gallery/ IHCR in Kampala, Weltkulturen


Museum in Frankfurt a. M. and Iwalewahaus in Bayreuth. The different research topics are very


diverse and span from an in-depth engagement with singular artworks to broader questions


about collecting art for public collections. Ibrahim El-Salahi will be present as guest of honour.
