Art and Ethnography Workshop

Artistic interventions into the collections of European ethnographic museums have been an innovative
curatorial practice in the last five years, aiming to question the history of the objects and to show them in
a new context. What about the cultural - and often colonial - heritage that lays in the storages

of African
museums? What is the potential for artists on the continent to re-interpret and re-contextualize it? The
workshop will present the concept of artistic intervention, highlight exemplary exhibitions and give space to
think about ways of how to implement it in our context.


Yvette Mutumba is co-founder and editor-in-chief of the art magazine Contemporary And (C&) – Platform for International Art
from African Perspectives. She is a senior guest researcher of the project African Art History and the Formation of a Modern
Aesthetic (2015 – 2018). From 2012 to 2016 she was curator at Weltkulturen Museum, Frankfurt a. M. Here she co-curated the
exhibitions “Foreign Exchange”, “El Hadji Sy: Paintings, Performance, Politics” and “A Labour of Love“, which was nominated for the 2016 Global Fine Arts Award. Mutumba studied Art History at Freie Universität, Berlin and holds a PhD from Birkbeck, University of London. She has published numerous texts on contemporary art from African perspectives as well as Global Art History, and co-curated further projects dealing with related topics.

The Admission is 20.000 UGX including Lunch for 2 days. For Goethe-Members it will be free.
