BEYOND DESIRE at MoMu museum Antwerpen. Desire, attitude and styling in African and Western cultures. 

So this should be an extra reason to visit me in Antwerp this summer, 

David Norden

BEYOND DESIRE, which is MoMu’s sixth important thematic exhibition, takes desire as its point of departure and examines the way in which two cultures, the African and the Western, influence one another and adopt each other’s visual idiom.

European fashion designers have adopted the embellishments, scarifications, colours and textiles of the Masai, and combined them with elements of Western haute couture.

In addition to fashion, the exhibition includes fashion photography, African studio photography, art and documentaries.

Momu has made a selection of work by the photographers Depara and Malick Sidibé, and is also exhibiting several pieces from the work of the contemporary studio photographer Apagya.
