12.08. – 29.08.2021
In the course of an exchange with the artist Yasmine Eid-Sabbagh at the Rautenstrauch-Joest Museum, Martens gained digital access to an archive of photographs taken in the period around 1890 – 1935, which came to the museum either through donations or purchases. Thematically, these photographs can be classified in the German colonial period, which Martens deals with in detail.
This exhibition is part of the WELL*-Summer at Ebertplatz.
