Beyond Compare: Art from Africa in the Bode-Museum

From 27 Oct. This exhibition introduces African art works from the Ethnological Museum into the collection of western sculpture in the Bode-Museum. Key to the exhibition is the comparison in how works from the two continents confronted the same or similar themes, albeit in strikingly different ways. Central themes include history, motherhood and iconography. One example given by organisers is the use of "power figures from the Congo" as spiritual protection for communities, serving a similar purpose as Gothic depictions of the Virgin Mary.
10.00-18.00 Thurs 10.00-22.00
