African puppets in an artistic installation by Pélagie Gbaguidi and Stefanie Oberhoff. 50 African puppets from the Puppet Theatre/Fairground Art collection -- originating mainly from Mali and Nigeria -- will be on show for the first time. The aesthetic and political backgrounds of these puppets provide the starting point for a process of reflection initiated by the two artists-curators Pélagie Gbaguidi (Benin/Belgium) and Stefanie Oberhoff (Stuttgart) who will also address issues relating to the presence of these objects in a European collection. This video is a part of this exhibition.
