22.09.2018 - 30.11.2018

We are pleased to announce Barthélémy Toguo's new exhibition at Robert Grunenberg Berlin.

In his first-ever solo exhibition at a German gallery, the Cameroonian artist undertakes a critical examination of the globalized present’s political climate as well as the psychological implications of the human condition. Addressing social and environmental issues, his works are fueled by his personal experience as an African in Europe. His studies of urgent challenges such as discrimination, alienation, and cross-border relations transcend cultural distinctions.

Besides installations encompassing photography, performance, and video art, Toguo integrates enigmatic watercolors into his output that figure as poetic vessels of hope amid the social and political critique his oeuvre articulates.
