Re-interpreting Colonial Artefacts in Local Nigerian Communities

Activity: Academic talk or presentation typesInvited talk


Symposium keynote lecture on how colonial artefacts are integrated into complex local politics, encompassing issues of identity, community, and family histories. The materials play a significant role in establishing a sense of rootedness within the community and are deployed as means of reclaiming the past, which was originally lost to colonialism. These new meanings emerge as the artefacts get reproduced and transformed through artistic engagement with them'.
