Woven Identities. Textiles and Photographs from West Africa – The Weickmann and Walther Collections
Ulm Museum, Ulm, Germany 07 Jun 2013 - 12 Jan 2014
Drawing on contemporary research on West African cotton clothing by the American historian Dr. Collen E. Kriger, the Ulm Museum will present a new view of its collection of African clothes in a special exhibition.
In dialogue with African photographs from the Neu-Ulm Walther Collection, the significance and tradition of African textiles in history and today will be revisited. Contemporary photographs by African artists showing men and women who express their identity through their clothing demonstrate the significance of dress across the centuries.
