Heritage and Archive Projects


Numbi Archive is an ongoing research project investigating contemporary arts practice from pre-civil war Somalia to the present day Diaspora. This living heritage which is performed day to day, is not limited and delineated by artistic canons, disciplines and professions. Rather, it is characterised by how people use art and culture. This includes popular and mass culture, in a free and self-determined way, re-configuring, sampling and mixing what they find, enjoying the exchange and re-enactments.
