Sankofa Vol. 2 : Return to life, Birth & Creation

Sankofa continues with the second volume of the trilogy, Return to Life: Birth & Creation, which will take place from September 17th to October 15th 2017. After travelling through the Land of the Ancestors, continue the hero's journey inspired by the life path of Dr. Martin Sigam and come back to life through this new exhibition.

The pieces of the Sigam Collection that will be showcased are not only works of art, but they also materialize the philosophies, values, beliefs and knowledge of many African ethnic groups. Transcending all borders and generations, these philosophies attempt to solve existential problems.

We invite you to discover what answers these peoples have developed to the questions that concern us all. In these exhibitions you’ll dive into the historic past of these masterpieces, what rites they were involved in and who used them. And you will also have the chance to create your own journey within these works of art.

Through this rich and dense journey, you will discover more than two thousand years of history of the birth place of humanity. You will be able to admire works as mesmerizing as frightening, complex as magic, or extraordinary as common.


The Return to Life: Birth & Creation exhibition closed its doors on the 15th of October 2017.

Don't miss the rest of  the trilogy with Sankofa Vol. 3 : Healing, from Magic to Medecine, which will take place from the 9th of June to the 6th of July 2018!
