The Museum der Moderne in Salzburg is showing works by the British-Nigerian artist Yinka Shonibare. In his works, Shonibare seeks the legacy of Western colonialism as well as its traces that reach into the present.
For his tragic-comic tableaux vivants, he prefers to take up episodes from the 18th and 19th centuries: Headless figures in historical costumes tailored from colorful batik fabrics. The retrospective includes around 60 works from the last 30 years.
