Multiple Artistic Mobilities – Travelling Artists from/to African Countries and European German-Speaking Countries (MAM)

Multiple Artistic Mobilities (MAM) is a research project and network of scholars, which focuses on itinerant artists who travelled between various African countries, including Benin, Ghana, Senegal, Namibia, Zaïre, Ethiopia, Egypt or Nigeria, and the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG), the German Democratic Republic (GDR), Austria and Switzerland from the 1950s to the 1980s. MAM seeks to collate and analyse multiple transcultural exchanges between artists, institutions and other agents in the field of visual arts during this period of decolonisation.
