On Friday November 4, the Art Histories and CAHIM Fellows and Teams visited the exhibition “DADA Africa. Dialogue with the Other“ at Berlinische Galerie. During the guided tour by the Art Histories Coordinator Katrin Kaptain, the joint discussion addressed post-colonial perspectives on Dada and African art, othering and saming, and also the question of altering efficacy or agency of works by relocating them in the museum context. By approaching the curatorial practices used in the exhibition, the group debated the mainly omitted question of provenance of the exhibited works from Africa as well.
