Namibia: Land of Memories and More - Imago Mundi
Contemporary Artists from Namibia
Imago Mundi - Luciano Benetton Collection
Texts by Luciano Benetton, Jennifer Karch Verzè, Nicky Marais, Hercules Viljoen
A collection - unique, extraordinary – that shows us contemporary art in Namibia through the work of 140 artists. Young and old, men and women, artists different in personality and expression who, for the first time, have the opportunity to go beyond boundaries in a global encounter with the art world. A visual story that brings to light a land of contrast and dissonance, the essence of Africa with its complex interweaving of the culture of the future and the art of the past. A timeless journey - from prehistory to science fiction – that pays homage to a compelling creativity, reflecting all the joie de vivre of this young country.
Namibia: Land of Memories and More is an Imago Mundi collection, a cultural, democratic, global, non-profit project, promoted by Luciano Benetton with the aim of creating the widest possible mapping of the different contemporary artistic experiences of our world. In Imago Mundi, each country is represented by the works of established artists and new talents, commissioned with the maximum freedom of expression, whose only constraint is the 10x12cm format.
