Mabele eleki lola ! The earth brighter than paradise

STANDING GUIDES – In the temporary exhibition Mabele eleki lola! experienced guides are present to answer all your questions. You can recognise them by their badge and museum t-shirt. Throughout the evening, you can also enjoy some mini-concerts in the park (in good weather) or at the museum. These are an excellent introduction to various African music styles and instruments.
Children are welcome too!

 

For its first temporary exhibition since it reopened in December 2018, AfricaMuseum invites Kinshasa artist Freddy Tsimba to create a dialogue with the museum’s collections. The exhibit is curated by writer In  Koli Jean Bofane, with the scientific contribution of Henry Bundjoko, director of the Musée national de la République démocratique du Congo – Kinshasa.


The title of the exhibit, ‘Mabele eleki lola ! The earth, brighter than paradise’, expresses the urgency of living in the here and now, and to the resilience demonstrated by Congolese people day after day. Tsimba’s monumental works converse for the first time with the museum’s collections. The artist wants to pay homage to the work of traditional sculptors and smiths.


This exhibition of the AfricaMuseum was realised in partnership with Africalia and WBI (Wallonie Bruxelles International). 


The permanent exhibition is also accessible during this nocturne.
