Description of the National Art Gallery of Namibia (NAGN) and the National Museum of Namibia (NMN):

NAGN and NMN are showcasing their collaborative efforts to create a safe space for the Namibian artist and researches their perspectives based on engagement with archival communal knowledge.

Together with the Museums Association of Namibia (MAN), the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation (SPK), the University of Namibia (UNAM), the University of Bonn, and the Ministry of Education, Arts and Culture (MoEAC) of Namibia, the institutions present the Artistic Research and Communal Knowledge: Reconnecting with Returned Cultural Belongings Exhibition, otherwise known as ARCK.

This ground-breaking showcase looks to enlighten exploration into the origins of 23 repatriated artifacts, Namibian material culture and pay homage to oral, performative and artisanal histories, preserved, and cared for within communities despite their violent suppression during colonialism and continued marginalization after Namibia’s independence.

The ARCK exhibition will be on display until 18 May 2024.
