Background to the Museum of Namibian Fashion project


PROJECT NAME: Preservation of Endangered Cultural Heritage Through Collaborative Conservation, Provenance Research And Creative Knowledge Production Using The Historical Collections From Namibia Held at the Ethnologisches Museum In Berlin (EM) And The National Museum Of Namibia, Windhoek (NMN)

The Museums Association of Namibia (MAN) is currently working in partnership with the National Museum of Namibia (NMN) and the University of Namibia (UNAM) on a project funded by the Gerda Henkel Foundation and one component of the project is the development of the Museum of Namibian Fashion.

This collaborative project seeks to unlock the healing and creative potential of the colonial collections from Namibia held at the Ethnologisches Museum (EM) in Berlin, Germany and the Ethnographic Collection at the National Museum of Namibia in Windhoek. It reconnects the collections with each other and with their heritage communities, researchers and artists in Namibia.
