Episode 9: Disrupting South Coast Colonialism

In this episode, Sophie is joined by Rachel Heminway-Hurst, Curator of World Art, and Edith Ojo, freelance Arts Consultant and advisor on the Fashioning Africa project.

Rachel and Edith explain the history and culture behind Yoruba Aso-oke textiles from West Africa, helping us to understand the symbolic importance of a British coastal museum collecting such textiles, and how new models of collecting enable previously unheard stories to be told.
