The exhibition ended with a powerful, interactive performance on decolonization, which brought to the forth new questions about how our colonial histories affect our lives today.
More about the performance: This performance lecture at Teknisk museum is the culmination of a long exploration process. The well-known Norwegian-Gambian performing artist Camara Lundestad Joof has colaborated with the Danish choreographer Ingrid Tranum Velazques, the Greenlandic poet Aka Niviâna and the Finish-Sami skulptor Stina Aletta Aikio to develop the project.
Date/time: Saturday 14 December 2019, 16-18.
