STP-on-Demand: Oliver Hardt "The Black Museum"
In the framework of STP-on-Demand the Goethe Pop Ups Kansas City and Houston present Oliver Hardt's documentary The Black Museum (2018).
The design of the National Museum of African American History and Culture by Ghanaian-British architect David Adjaye is documented in The Black Museum by German filmmaker Oliver Hardt. Within the spaces of a museum that explores US history and culture through the lens of the African American experience, this multi-perspective documentary gives a platform to Black diasporic voices. Together with his earlier documentary Black Deutschland, Hardt’s The Black Museum was selected by Goethe Pop Up Kansas City and Goethe Pop Up Houston as a reminder of storytelling and creative expression’s ability to challenge the dominant discourse, a theme recurring in works by Shaping the Past fellows Alisha B. Wormsley and Patrick Weems, which are both part of the Goethe Pop Up’s programming this fall.
