Yinka Shonibare CBE: End of Empire
Since the 1990s, the British-Nigerian artist Yinka Shonibare CBE (*1962, London) has developed opulently executed sculptures and installations, colourful collages and theatrically staged photographs and films. To do so he transforms episodes from art and history whose effects influence our present-day lives. The volume takes up the traces of colonialism and its consequences for role models, worldviews and body images in the works of Shonibare.
