Structures of Identity – Photography from The Walther Collection
Van Vrijdag 29 Juni 2018 -  08:00
t/m Woensdag 29 Augustus 2018 - 17:00

In the exhibition Structures of Identity, Foam presents a selection of photographic works from The Walther Collection. Structures of Identity examines how photographers have used portraiture to affirm or challenge social stereotypes constructed around notions of race, gender, class, and nationality. Iconic works by photographers including August Sander, Richard Avedon and J.D. ‘Okhai Ojeikere are combined with the work of contemporary photographers such as Yto Barrada, Samuel Fosso, Zanele Muholi and Guy Tillim (both from South Africa). Works of vernacular photography, from a range of cultures and historical periods, are also on view. Photographic portraits are more than mementoes of friends and family. They are markers of social identity. Reflecting on the ways that portrait photography has been deployed, Structures of Identity visualises the political and cultural factors that shape individual and collective subjectivities, with a particular focus on the relation between self-representation and social identity.

Fashion Cities Africa

Mode is hot in Afrika, maar dé Afrikaanse mode bestaat niet. In verschillende steden bestaan diverse bloeiende modescenes. Van streetwear tot couture en van experimenteel tot meer ingetogen: dragers, makers en kenners tonen er hun identiteit, persoonlijke smaak en achtergrond mee. Vaak gelinkt aan de stad waarin ze wonen. De stad die hen een spiegel voorhoudt. Fashion Cities Africa toont de diversiteit aan mode in Casablanca, Johannesburg, Lagos en Nairobi – door de ogen van 15 lokale experts. In Fashion Cities Africa bekijk je de stedelijke modescenes vanuit het perspectief van lokale ontwerpers, stylisten, shophouders, fotografen en bloggers. Zo nemen broer en zus 2ManySiblings je mee naar de markt in Nairobi, waar ze tweedehands designerkleding kopen om te restylen. Ook vind je in de tentoonstelling creaties van onder meer The Sartists (Johannesburg), Said Mahrouf (Casablanca) en het modelabel Maki Oh (Lagos), dat gedragen wordt door onder andere Beyoncé en Michelle Obama. Het Tropenmuseum selecteerde voor deze tentoonstelling Nederlandse experts die hun Afrikaanse roots verwerken in mode: Daily Paper, Karim Adduchi, Lady Africa, Doru Komonoteng Loboka en Nsimba Valene Lontanga. Voor Fashion Cities Africa delen zij hun inspiratie, werkwijze én ontwerpen met de museumbezoeker.

Tchikumbi - Doctrovée Bansimba (Kongo-Brazzaville

 Galerie 23 organiseert zondag 24 juni van 14-16u een 'get together' met kunstenares Doctrovée Bansimba (1985). Fons Geerlings en Priscilla Tosari heten u van harte welkom.

Het is de eerste keer dat Bansimba haar kunstwerken toont in Nederland. “Ik adem kunst, ik droom kunst, ik huil kunst, ik dans kunst, ik lach kunst, ik eet kunst, ik zweet kunst......kunst is mijn leven.” Een uitspraak die tekenend is voor deze Kongolese kunstenaar.

Nelson Mandela: The Centenary Exhibition

This exhibition explores the life and times of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (1918 – 2013) and marks the centenary of his birth. It provides insight into Mandela’s journey from young freedom fighter to becoming the inspiration for an international movement against South Africa’s violent and oppressive apartheid system, and an emblem of an ongoing struggle to build a more just and equitable world.

Life is Wonderful - Mandela's Unsung Heroes

Discover the story behind the infamous Rivonia Trial, where Mandela and his co-defendants fought for the freedom of South Africa, in this new film.

Directed by former high court judge Sir Nick Stadlen, the film follows the 10 leading opponents of apartheid and their lawyers and supporters through the trial. It is an inspiring story of immense courage and self-sacrifice on the part of a small group of multiracial idealists.

Though the defendants were saved from the death penalty, eight of the ten were sentenced to life imprisonment, Mandela among them. When Mandela was released 27 years later, he had a vision of multiracial democracy for South Africa.

Tata Madiba. Father of our democracy: Father of our Nation.

The upgraded Tata Madiba exhibition content and objects are meant to stimulate conversation about his life, struggles and extraordinary contribution to protection of South Africa’s rich biodiversity; but also connect to contemporary issues around conservation and sustainability.  The exhibition also includes the many species named after him and those he and his fellow prisoners may have encountered on Robben Island.  The exhibition includes as its central piece the iMadiba Project which is a participatory art project conceptualized and created by artist and photographer Erhardt Thiel. It is endorsed by the Nelson Mandela Foundation The intention of the installation or micro museum is to facilitate dialogue, memory, reflection and forward thinking. The combination of the Tata Madiba exhibition and the iMadiba Project art installation is therefore an apt marriage to celebrate the centenary of this great statesman Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela.
