TALKING OBJECTS LAB is a series of events on the African continent and in Germany curated by Isabel Raabe and Dr. Mahret Ifeoma Kupka that explores the question of what knowledge can be today beyond European knowledge systems. Five thematic fields are foregrounded: decolonizing memory, decolonizing knowledge, the re-evaluation of objects from colonial contexts, empowerment through and opportunities for artistic perspectives, as well as questions about classical museum forms of preservation and presentation. In the live streamed conversation, Azu Nwagbogu will introduce the Home Museum Lagos, which he co-founded, a private collection of photographs gathered through an Open Call as part of the LagosPhoto Festival. The discussion will revolve around the question of how collections can make objects tell a story. Whose story do the objects tell? What influence does a collection narrative have on the meaning of the singular object? And can this relationship be changed when collections are created in collective processes?
