Inhalt The Visual History Lab (VHL) at the Centre for African Studies takes place yearly. It is a learning format, which allows students to spend one week working intensively on a particular topic. The lab ends with a public event, which students organise themselves.
The Visual History Lab 2020 is concerned with the Ernst & Ruth Dammann Collection at the Basler Afrika Bibliographien. During their research in Namibia in the 1950s, the Dammanns made numerous sound recordings of African languages and numerous photographs. Given its material richness and its intermediality the Dammann collection is one of the most interesting and complex collection on Namibia in Basel.
During the VHL we will use this collection to raise questions of colonial knowledge production, media and mediation, and disciplinary epistemology. We will explore how the collection of photographs and sound recordings raise questions about language, identity, land and colonial power, and configure some of the key concepts of African social, cultural and historical analysis, among them agency, voice, gender and embodiment.
We will conclude our seminar with a public event, in which we present the results of our engagements with the photographs, sound recordings, and the written records in the Dammann collection. The students will develop the format of the event.
