Barthélémy Toguo: Faith Can Move Mountains
Opening: Sunday, 7 August 2022, 11 am
You're invited to join the opening on Sunday, 7th of August, 11 am.
Barthélémy Toguo (*1967) has been focusing in his artistic practice on highly topical issues of identity and social belonging, migration, flight, displacement, and those restrictions that stem from territorial borders and politics regarding sovereign rights. Against the background of his dual Cameroonian-French citizenship, he thereby explicitly adopts a non-Eurocentric approach. He is above all concerned about the causes of ecological problems and their impact on society: drinking and industrial water shortages, maldevelopments in agriculture, the effects of climate change, corruption, armed conflicts or lack of economic development prospects.
