black civilizations has been open to the public for a few weeks now it's opening comes amid global calls for european countries to return african. during the colonial era. it's as if a giant spaceship has lended in the city center. the new museum of black civilizations was built by the chinese. but in the center off the entrance hall the african symbol tree the first exhibition is an attempt to showcase it all mankind is rooted in africa. talk about african civilization as an african art you can't be constrained by what was taken during the colonial times therefore we are starting with tomorrow our oldest ancestors seven million years ago and we go up to contemporary art or it is a very very long period we call it africa in the time of the world the title of the
inaugural exhibition is african civilizations continuous creation of humanity to new day money to live was it a single of the poet and first senegalese president after independence for the museum's originated he developed the concept of the congress of black rights us and not just in nine hundred fifty six but issues such as colonialism and slavery were discussed even though the museum was located in the exploration goes far beyond the museum wants to be a showcase of. the first temporary exhibition spend a range of topics from prehistoric culture us to cuba and modern african out widely and controversial debated question offer a situation of the looted that is not in the main focus of the correct us. consequently the biggest spaces in the museum dedicated to modern black thought in cooperation with the have. contemporary cuban artists also show their works. laureates of the contemporary art fair art i've represented by using.
only one small room tucked away in a corner on the ground floor is reserved for traditional african out and there's no intention to. that. is upon this is that they that things have been stolen africans are not going to ask to strip european museums with their works there that are perhaps a very valuable for these works have to be returned to the communities to which they belong. one of them this famous saber which was property of. the religious leader founded an empire and what is today synagogue. he was defeated by french troops in eighty fifty seven. for the moment he's alone objects that we will return to their official owners at the end of the exhibition that's on september the second. that we would like for these objects to be returned to their
rightful owners. when we take them back assuming that we reach an agreement with all parties both the authorities and the communities we can do whatever we want we could store them in the museums we could showcase them or return them to the sacred forest or local people might even decide we don't want them i don't think anybody should tell us what to do with these objects who. think the museum not only sells historic artifacts but also features modern exhibits like these traditionally inspired textiles was anything. in this room there are some very beautiful things from been in ivory coast gabon and also egypt these are beautiful things but of course the thousands tens of thousands of works are currently in europe or the united states or elsewhere and the should no doubt have a place in a great museum like this one. to take. all this history takes us back to our ancestors the black people that really portrays another picture this is
our story the visit really taught me a lot it was enriching he swore off. over twenty thousand people have. visit to the museum since it opened at the beginning of the year its unique concept seems to fit in there if you. just. look and now we have the tale of a piglet who was rescued from a south african avatar she went on to create a life on a canvas after the new order oda taught her how to paint and i'm not responsible for this one but meet picasso. she came close to ending up on a pledge but now she's serving up dramatic brushstrokes at the farm sanctuary in south africa. a picasso is definitely an abstract expressionist you can't exactly define what she's facing but i can tell you that her style slightly changes
depending on her mood like any great autos. her pictures sell for over three pairs neuros with the proceeds go into animal welfare they're also a pig deal for swiss watchmaker swatch. when she's not bringing home the bacon picasso takes her artistic talents in her stride while the going around and between her bursts of creativity. and that's it from danger of being is africa you can catch all stories on our website and our facebook page we have you now with some more pictures of auschwitz on display at the new opened museum of african civilizations in the car see an extract.
