Stolen Moments: Namibia Music History Untold (1950-1980)

Stolen Moments – Namibian Music History Untold (1950-80s)

An exhibition that chronicles the intimate stories, songs and experiences of those who shaped Namibian popular culture during some of the most repressive years of Apartheid rule.

"The Stolen Moments exhibition comes at a particularly apposite moment in both Namibian and British history.

After much negotiation, the German government has agreed to discuss reparations for “the forgotten genocide” (1904-1908) that took place in Namibia while under German colonial rule. This highly publicised case has placed Namibia in the international spotlight, and while related to a much earlier period than that covered by the exhibition, it has brought attention to the extent to which Namibia’s history has been largely hidden from view. We therefore consider Stolen Moment’s purpose to share stories of struggle, resilience and creative enterprise from a more recent period of Namibia’s history as part of a more generalised process of reparation.

The exhibition also provides an opportunity to tell the story of Britain’s often overlooked involvement in Namibia’s history, and to contribute to a wider agenda to promote knowledge-sharing about Britain’s relationship with Africa and the African diaspora."
