Guided tour

Pathways by Nnenna Onuoha

In her work Pathways, the artist Nnenna Onuoha examines the colonial context behind street names in the neighbourhoods surrounding the Brücke-Museum in Dahlem. In doing so, she draws on her own experience of mapping and the practice of storytelling in her hometown of Accra, Ghana. With her sound walk, the artist intertwines historical extracts with current recordings of these spaces, shifting the political context of the exhibition to the streets.

Nnenna Onuoha is a Ghanaian-Nigerian researcher, filmmaker and artist based in Berlin. Her written and audiovisual works centre Afrodiasporic voices to explore monumental silences surrounding the histories and afterlives of colonialism across West Africa, Europe and the US, asking: how do we remember, which pasts do we choose to perform and why?  A second strand of her work focuses on archiving Black experience in the present. Nnenna is currently a doctoral researcher in Media Anthropology at Harvard University and Global History at the University of Potsdam.
