Performance: It Lies in Public Spaces | Kollaboratives Museum


In the performance, which takes place regularly at loose intervals in the exhibitions of the Ethnologisches Museum in the Humboldt Forum, the artist David Dibiah questions the African collections and their presentation. What is contained in public spaces and display cabinets like these? What truths must be uncovered? What lies are still being told today? Together with the audience and in alternating rhythms consisting of rap, prayer, commemorative proclamations, melodies and poetry recitals a protest sound is created that is deeply meaningful while demanding: No object without permission!
