NUH-MI-BEE-UHN – Germany’s Forgotten Genocide in South West Africa
Film Screening, Q&A and Art Installation
Hambira’s film draws together personal and historical contexts about Germany’s colonial history in today’s Namibia from the 19th to early 20th century. The presentation also includes an art installation, an otjikaiva, a Victorian-style hat like those worn by nineteenth-century German missionaries but made of Namibian fabrics—an important sign of cultural identity for the Herero in resistance to the history of the genocide. The art installation will be located in the Hollander first floor lobby outside the Language Resource Center (LRC).
