About Roxane Mbanga
Roxane Mbanga (b.1996, Paris) is a Guadeloupian-Cameroonian-French multidisciplinary artist, currently based in Amsterdam. Working at the junction of fashion, film, graphic design, photography, writing, and performance, Mbanga is a storyteller. Through her installations, she highlights the perception of the self. Naked, covered with facial jewelries, embodied by objects, in movement on the crowded streets of Lagos, dressed to reveal the strength or staying still in the silence of oppression, the body speaks. Between invisibilization and hypervisibilization, she questions the place of black women in public spaces and offers the audience tools for reflection on this matter.
Our Colonial Inheritance in the Tropenmuseum
Colonialism is not a thing of the past. It has shaped the world: our physical, mental and personal world. Colonialism lives on to this day. In the exhibition ‘Our Colonial Inheritance’, we look at the Dutch colonial history and presence, in Indonesia, Suriname, Curaçao, Sint Maarten and many other countries. You will not get to see and hear the ‘known’ history, there is more to see and learn. The exhibition shows how colonialism shaped the world of today, and how people endured colonialism. Learn how people tried to create their own lives, rebelled and remained in charge. Are you open to a multivoiced perspective?
