Emeka Ogboh

IF FOUND PLEASE RETURN TO LAGOS

In what position do African emigrants in Europe find themselves today? The Nigerian artist Emeka Ogboh (*1977) addresses this question in his new publication, which is being published in conjunction with his first big solo exhibition. In his works, he deals intensively with the topic of immigration, while also allowing his own experiences to enter into them. For his exhibition at the Kunsthalle, he also produced numerous site-related works concentrating on the sense of taste. For Baden-Baden, for example, he therefore brewed a version of the meanwhile legendary beer „Sufferhead Original”. The artist consequently manages to create a picture of a cosmopolitan society that deals self-confidently with roots, influences, and spaces in-between.
