Entitled The African Shed Laboratory, Kemi Bassene’s project seeks to show that museum archives are not just the relics of a body of works in African culture but a dynamic force of artistic creation and recreation. Cross-referencing and continuity between music and the visual arts, as well as relations between art and politics, are also issues that form the basis of his work, as well as that of the museum’s new section on contemporary Africa.
