In view of the recent developments on the restitution of the Benin Bronzes, the opportunity arises to reflect on new possibilities of cooperation together with actors from Nigeria.

What forms of exchange are possible in the future on the basis of a transfer of ownership? How will the Benin Bronzes be presented from now on – in Benin City, Nigeria, and the rest of the world? How can history, knowledge of crafting practices and imagery, and contemporary art be brought into dialogue with each other?

On the occasion of the commitment of the Federal Government and the Free State of Saxony to the return of the Benin Bronzes, this presentation in collaboration with the multidisciplinary artist Enotie Paul Ogbebor offers a first outlook.
