RESIST! The Art of Resistance

The special exhibition “RESIST! The Art of Resistance” explores different forms, moments and histories of resistance against colonialism and its current continuities.

To this end, the RJM invites curators and activists Peju Layiwola from Nigeria, Esther Utjiua Muinjangue & Ida Hoffmann from Namibia, Tímea Junghaus from Hungary and Elizaveta Khan & Mona Leitmeier from Cologne to curate their own spaces. These are complemented by objects from the RJM’s collection, historical materials, personal testimonies, and works of contemporary art. The exhibition offers places for gathering, reflection and action through workshops in the exhibition space with an extensive program of events and mediation.
