Vrouwen van het water - foto's van Angèle Etoundi Essamba
In deze tentoonstelling nemen we u mee naar Ganvié, een vissersdorp aan de zuidkust van het West-Afrikaanse land Benin. Kenmerkend voor het dorp zijn de woningen op palen, zwevend boven het water van een lagune, het meer van Nokoué. Fotografe Angèle Etoundi Essamba (Cameroun) bezocht Ganvié de afgelopen jaren meerdere keren, ging in gesprek met de vrouwen en volgde hen in het ritme van hun dagelijks leven, waarin water zo’n cruciale rol speelt. Want terwijl de bewoners, de Toffinou, volledig omringd worden door water, is drinkwater schaars. De vrouwen spelen een belangrijke rol in het watermanagement, beheren de grote vaten met drinkwater en zijn uiterst zuinig in het gebruik ervan. afrikamuseum

African Masterpieces - The Story of the Kingdom of Ife
The first exhibition to focus on the art of Ife, an ancient city in modern day Nigeria. The artists of Ife made sculptures from metal, stone and terracotta that have placed the region on the map in terms of world art history. The exhibition displays some of the world's most sophisticated historical art works – more than 100 sculptures of metal, stone and terracotta from the 12th to 16th centuries tell the story of the African civilisation of Ife, ancestors of the Yoruba, one of the largest ethnic groups of modern day Nigeria. The exhibition has previously been on view in the USA, Great Britain and Spain. varldskulturmuseerna africanart

African Masters - Art from the Ivory Coast
Starting point of the exhibition is the general consensus among art historians today that in the so-called primitive societies individual masters created unique works of the highest quality. Approximately 180 masks, figures and everyday objects from Ivory Coast and neighbouring countries, created by exceptionally talented artists working in a wide range of fields, sheds new light on the role of the artist in African society. The exhibition sets out to place these outstanding works in an art historical context that is comparable to that of our great masters, from Michelangelo to Picasso. bundeskunsthalle

Moshekwa Langa – The Jealous Lover
Moshekwa Langa’s work was shown in the late nineties – now he is present with his site-specific work The Jealous Lover. Moshekwa Langa (*1975 in Bakenberg/Southafrica) is just as familiar with European culture, and particularly literature, as he is with the visual culture of South Africa. He combines and weaves together diverse European and African themes, motifs and elements, creating installations, works on paper, photographs and videos that form a new assemblage. He often uses ordinary materials like strings, watercolors, found items, tape, thread reels and threads. It is precisely that these threads tell (hi)stories. They connect different objects, thoughts, associations; with his threads Langa weaves a visual and often also linguistic net of political experiences and personal memories – between Apartheid and exile. ifagalleryberlin

Silent Voice (UK-South African Season at Edinburgh Fringe Festival)
Silent Voice portrays four men who get together for an intelligent but highly dangerous heist. From thereon the events that follow are more of a robbery procedural as the play explores how and why things go wrong and philosophically examines the tattered dreams and beliefs of the robbers. As the play unfolds each individual tells the story of where he came from and the reasons for his present situation. The play deals with thrust, greed, sacrifice and friendship. Peppered with ironic cultural undertones, it's about the relationship between man and his dream to obtain wealth at any cost. silentvoice@EFF
