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 2017, they have been engaged with three collections of African modernism: the Makerere Art Gallery / MIHCR, the Weltkulturenmuseum in Frankfurt a.M. and the Iwalewahaus. The different research topics are very diverse and span from an indepth engagement with singular artworks to broader questions about collecting art for public collections.

A detailed program will be published soon.
