Mu.ZEE

Since 2013 Mu.ZEE, the museum of modern and contemporary art in Ostend, is doing research on colonial and postcolonial histories closely related with re-thinking the archive, the collection and exhibition policy. There are questions that no museum can ignore today: who speaks? Who is listening? And why? Three Mu.ZEE exhibitions and the most recent collection presentation will be at the center of this presentation: “Hunting & Collecting” with Sammy Baloji (2014), “European Ghosts – the representation of art from Africa in the twentieth century” (2015), “Bokutani Ya Masangisi Ya Kinshasa Na Masangisi Ya Ostende” (A conversation between collections from Kinshasa and Ostend) with Sinzo Aanza (2018) and “Transform the local. Poetry must be made by all” (2019).
