Der Abend wird von den Basler Afrika Bibliographien organisiert. \n\nWeltweit leiden 20 Millionen Kinder an schwerer akuter Unterernährung\, schätzen die Nahrungsexperten der Unicef. Sie fügen sofort hinzu: Unterernährung ist ein lokales und kontextabhängiges Phänomen. Es gibt kaum Pathologien die sich schwerer vergleichen lassen als Unterernährung. Hunger nimmt – auf Grund von genetischen Veranlagungen\, Essgewohnheiten und Lebensweisen – so unterschiedliche Formen an\, dass ein untrainiertes Auge kaum zwischen dem pathologischen und dem normalen Fall unterscheiden kann. Wie soll Hunger dann „global“ erfasst und bekämpft werden? Nahrungsexperten entwerfen Techniken\, die Unterernährung vergleichbar und quantifizierbar machen. \nDas MUAC–Bändchen (die Abkürzung steht für ‚Mid-Upper Arm Circumference‘) ist eines der meist benutzten Gegenstände der humanitären Hilfe. Es ist ein ca. 35 cm langer Plastikstreifen\, der um den Oberarm eines Kindes gewickelt wird\, und durch einen Farbcode den Ernährungszustand andeutet: Grün für normal\, gelb für akute Unterernährung und rot für schwere akute Unterernährung. Das Bändchen wird von allen großen Hilfsorganisationen wie Unicef\, Aktion gegen den Hunger oder Ärzte Ohne Grenzen eingesetzt. \nDer Vortrag folgt den Spuren der Tropenärzte\, die seit den 1960er Jahren am MUAC arbeiten. Dabei wird eine Form der Globalgeschichte auf den Prüfstand gesetzt\, die das Globale nicht voraussetzt\, sondern mikroskopisch rekonstruieren will. Die Geschichte des MUAC-Bändchens gibt den Anlass\, über die Möglichkeiten und Grenzen einer historischen Anthropologie der Globalisierung zu diskutieren. \nJoël Glasman ist Historiker an der Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. Im DFG-Projekt „Die Erfindung des Flüchtlingslagers“ untersucht er die Geschichte des Expertenwissens über Flüchtlinge. Letzte Veröffentlichung: (Hg.\, zusammen mit Debora Gerstenberger) Techniken der Globalisierung. Globalgeschichte meets Akteur-Netzwerk-Theorie\, Bielefeld\, transkript Verlag 2016.

'Playing White' under Aparheid" DESCRIPTION:Please join the launch of Ulla Dentlinger’s book Where are you from. ‘Playing White’ under Apartheid at Clarke‘s Bookshop in Cape Town. \nProgramme\n \n\nWelcome and Introduction by Craj Rassool\n“Juggling colour in apartheid Namibia“?

By various obscure and not\n well-documented processes\, we changed our ‘racial’ classification from ‘coloured’ – as\n defined by the apartheid policy of the day – to that of ‘white’. We juggled colour …\n the price we paid was anguish\, constant fear of detection and a sacrifice of family\n connectedness. The decades-long process of becoming completely comfortable with my\n ultimate identity was psychologically so unnerving that I have only recently felt free\n to talk about it.

She uses both the content and materiality of these archives as generative grounds for artistic production. In September 2016\, she produced the inaugural exhibition for the new Wits Anthropology Museum\, titled If we burn\, there is ash. For this she used ash and cement as materials to investigate the potential aftermaths of fire and burning in relation to collections of material culture. In Floating Bodies\, her current exhibition at Iwalewahaus in Bayreuth\, she took as a starting point the natural power of a flood to unearth long-buried bodies and reflect on human imperatives to create barriers\, borders and walls as protection from the deluge. In June 2017\, she conducts research at the Basler Afrika Bibliographien for a future project concerned with the archive of journalist Ruth Weiss. The lunch talk\, moderated by historian Melanie Boehi\, focuses on Talya Lubinsky’s past and ongoing work on the poetic potential of archives. \nView event poster URL:https://www.baslerafrika.ch/event/the-poetic-potential-of-archives-a-conversation-with-artist-talya-lubinsky/ LOCATION:Basler Afrika Bibliographien\, Klosterberg 23\, Basel\, 4051\, Switzerland CATEGORIES:Moderated Talk ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://www.baslerafrika.ch/content/uploads/2017/05/shutterstock_145520230-bw-lr.jpeg ORGANIZER;CN="Basler%20Afrika%20Bibliographien":MAILTO:bab@baslerafrika.ch END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=Europe/Helsinki:20170627T183000 DTEND;TZID=Europe/Helsinki:20170627T213000 DTSTAMP:20221206T143308 CREATED:20170601T163227Z LAST-MODIFIED:20170601T163227Z UID:8584-1498588200-1498599000@www.baslerafrika.ch SUMMARY:Exhibition Opening: Stolen Moments DESCRIPTION:Please join us for the opening of the exhibition \nStolen Moments – Namibian Music History Untold\nEntrance is free.

How did musicians in Namibia live back then? Who influenced them musically? How did artists deal with the restrictions of the apartheid system? What repercussions did socio-political realities have on their careers? What concessions had to be made? \nThe exhibition is the outcome of an extensive four-year research project conducted by the Stolen Moments research group \, and draws on a comprehensive multi-media database which the group compiled in the course of the project. The Stolen Moments database includes historic films\, music recordings\, stills\, photography\, press clippings and oral history\, all relating to the Namibian music scene from the 1950s to the 1980s. \nOpening hours \n\n27 July 2017\, 18:30: Exhibition Opening\n28 June – 02 July 2017: Daily\, 11:00-19:00\n04 July – 14 July 2017: Tue.-Fri.\, 14:00-18:00; Sat. 11.00-16:00 (closed on Sunday and Monday)\n\nFeatured Artists\nWith works by Ben Molatzi\, Wiks Louw\, Willy Collins\, #Kharixurob\, Samuel Flermuis\, Kakuja Kembale\, The Rocking Kwela Boys\, Rita Ikwambi\, The Ugly Creatures\, Kwela and Lexington\, Papa Shikongeni\, Phillipus Shehama\, David Amukoto\, Sandile Pazvakavamwa\, Stephan Zaubitzer and many more. \nArtistic Direction\nAino Moongo (NAM) and Dr. Ulf Vierke (D) \nStolen Moments Research Group\nAino Moongo (NAM)\, Eljakim “Baby” Doeseb (NAM)\, Thorsten Schütte (D) \nTeam Iwalewahaus\nLucie Ameloot\, Alexandra Kuhnke\, Sabine Linn\, Thorsten Schütte\, Wolfgang Spahn\, Hercules Viljoen \nTeam BAB\nDag Henrichsen\, Reto Ulrich\, Christian Vandersee\, Anna Vögeli \nEvent Photo by John Liebenberg URL:https://www.baslerafrika.ch/event/stolen-moments-exhibition/ LOCATION:Basler Afrika Bibliographien\, Klosterberg 23\, Basel\, 4051\, Switzerland CATEGORIES:Exhibition ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:https://www.baslerafrika.ch/content/uploads/2017/05/StolenMoments_Poster-imageJ_Liebenberg_155x110.jpg ORGANIZER;CN="Basler%20Afrika%20Bibliographien":MAILTO:bab@baslerafrika.ch END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=Europe/Helsinki:20170701T170000 DTEND;TZID=Europe/Helsinki:20170701T183000 DTSTAMP:20221206T143308 CREATED:20170511T144322Z LAST-MODIFIED:20170719T140414Z UID:1982-1498928400-1498933800@www.baslerafrika.ch SUMMARY:Archive Talk: Stolen Moments of Namibian Popular Music under Apartheid DESCRIPTION:The Stolen Moments research project traced popular Namibian music cultures which were either suppressed or ignored under the apartheid system.

It displays photographs from the German photographers Ruth Dammann and Anneliese Scherz and from the Swiss journalist Hans Jenny who took photographs in Namibia and South Africa in the 1950s and 1960s. \nThe exhibition concept attempts to build bridges between artistic\, curatorial and academic perspectives. It is determined by questions on positionality and asks  the audience to enter into dialogue with the images on display\, view historical difference critically and reflect about current colonial phantasies. \nOur culturally\, politically and historically informed perspectives of today are embedded in complex (post-) colonial fields and tensions. In this exhibition our perspectives are put into question. \nThe exhibition´s narratives concern subjective processes of selection\, political criteria and choices\, and address uneasiness and challenges\, apart from the impossibility to ask people related to the images\, including the photographers\, for their permission and about their own version of related histories. \nWhat makes photographs from the colonial period problematic? \nHow can we define\, read and characterise colonial aesthetics? \nWho is allowed to determine which images and which documents to display for a larger public? \nWhere are the limits of curiosity? \nvisual regimes / photographic and colonial aesthetics / discourses on violence and power / colonial image archives / multi-perspectives / questions on identity / postcoloniality \n  \nTalks & Presentations \nThursday 5.10\, 10.30am: “Colonial Photography and Portraits” by Prof. Dr. Gesine Krüger (UZH) (in German) \nWednesday 18.10\, 6.15pm: „Conversations with the Past.

The paper will present and discuss a number of ruined post-apartheid monuments and memorials and critically engage with the significance of their relative ‘success’ and ‘failure’\, construction and destruction\, making and unmaking\, and ultimately\, interrogate the ideological significance of heritage as a vehicle for promoting values such as reconciliation and nation building.” \nDuane Jethro is a 2017 Alexander von Humboldt Post-Doctoral Fellow based at the Centre for Anthropological Research for Museums and Heritage\, CARMaH\, chaired by Professor Sharon Macdonald\, at the Humboldt University\, Berlin. A graduate of the University of Utrecht\, his work focusses on the intersections between material culture\, heritage\, aesthetics and the senses. His post-doctoral project\, Aesthetics and Difference\, looks at the work of commemorations under changing social and temporal conditions in Berlin. He has held a post-doctoral research fellowship at the Archive and Public Culture Research Initiative at the University of Cape Town and has published in African Diaspora\, Tourist Studies and Material Religion. \nThis presentation is part of the Research Colloquium Namibian & Southern African Studies organised by the BAB and the Centre for African Studies.

Following recent historiography on domesticity\, ‘home’ here is understood in both its ideological and material dimensions. What can architecture\, interior spatial arrangements and domestic objects tell us about everyday life in the colonial home? How might a study of the colonial home lead to a better understanding of interactions between coloniser and colonised? And\, finally\, what legacies have colonial homes left in sub-Saharan Africa today? \n  \nBritta Schilling is Assistant Professor in Cultural History at Utrecht University. She is the author of Postcolonial Germany: Memories of Empire in a Decolonized Nation (Oxford\, 2014) and is currently working on a comparative history of colonial homes in British\, French and German territories in sub-Saharan Africa. \n  \nThis talk is part of the research seminar African History\, organised by the BAB and the History Department of the University of Basel.
