CuMMA Discourse Series # 23: Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung – Somatic Experiences and the Future Museum on the 4th of Feb at 18

Lecture by Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung
Somatic Experiences and the Future Museum – on performativity, phenomenology of the embodied mind, and the postcolonial body as site of discourse

4th of February 2015
18.00-21.00, EMMA – Espoo Museum of Modern Art

The debates on the museum of the future and the future of museums have become even more virulent in the last years. It seems to be a consensus that the concept of the museum has to be redefined, rethought, reframed, and the museum itself has to be re-institutionalised and the institution re-mused. How can this museum of the lived and (re-)enacted be applicable, realised or recognised in the post-colonial body?

Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung (PhD), born in 1977 in Yaoundé, Cameroon, is an independent art curator and biotechnologist. He has been living on and off in Berlin since 1997, where he studied Food Biotechnology in the University of Technology Berlin, did a doctorate in Medical Biotechnology in the Heinrich Heine University in Düsseldorf and a post-doctorate in Biophysics in Montpellier. He currently works, parallel to his activities as a curator, as a scientist in a medical device company.
