Distance and Desire:
Encounters with the African Archive
Curated by Tamar Garb
June 9, 2013 – May 17, 2015
The Walther Collection is pleased to present Distance and Desire: Encounters with the African Archive.
This exhibition brings together late-nineteenth and early-twentieth-century portraits, cartes de visite, postcards, album pages, and books from Southern and Eastern Africa, set in dialogue with recent photography and video by contemporary artists who have engaged with photographic archives. Distance and Desire
offers new perspectives on the legacy of anthropological and ethnographic visions of Africans, reimagining the poetic and political dimension of the archive, its diverse histories, and its changing meanings.
