The Jean Pigozzi African Art Collection

Megalopolis – Stimmen aus Kinshasa, GRASSI Museum Leipzig, Germany

from 01/12/2018 to 14/04/2019

Of Africa's 800 million inhabitants today, more than half will live in cities in 25 years’ time. With more than 12 million inhabitants, Kinshasa, the capital of the Democratic Republic of Congo, is the third largest metropolis on the continent. The urban reality of the African continent is rarely shown in ethnological museums. The GRASSI Museum of Ethnography focuses on this reality and gives 24 artists from Kinshasa a "carte blanche" to have their voices heard in the museum.
