The GRASSI Museum of Ethnography in Leipzig (Germany) gives 24 artists from Kinshasa a “carte blanche” curated by Freddy Tsimba and Eddy Ekete.

« The exhibition is not shown from the point of view of a European ethnologist; instead, the artists of Kinshasa are themselves conveying their concerns to museum visitors, without filters: Colonial past and its effects, violence, oppression of women, war, corruption, exploitation, environmental destruction, cultural heritage, spirituality, urban everyday life. »

You will find works by Chéri Benga, Francis Mampuya and Steve Bandoma, among others.
