Duo Exhibition

»Zenkeri«

Yana Wernicke & Jonas Feige

During the times of colonialism the botanist Georg August Zenker, then living in the German colony ”Kamerun“, was regarded as one of the most important collectors for the Berlin Botanical Museum. In their collaborative photography project Yana Wernicke and Jonas Feige address the history and repercussions of his life.

The two photographers repeatedly travelled to today’s republic of Cameroon to portray Zenker’s descendants who still live in his house in the remote settlement of Bipindi today.

With their project Yana Wernicke and Jonas Feige tell the story of the Zenker family, who today live with the difficulty of reconciling their German and Cameroonian identities. With the exhibition they aim to draw attention to the still palpable repercussions of German colonialism and to the tensions and contradictions that arise when dealing with colonial heritage.

The exhibition is part of EMOP Berlin — EUROPEAN MONTH OF PHOTOGRAPHY 2018.
