Vermisst in Benin

The Nigerian artist Emeka Ogboh has launched a poster campaign that seeks to introduce urgency into the long-running discussion about the restitution of Benin sculptures looted by British troops and on display in museums in Europe and North America.

His posters, on public display in Dresden and towns nearby, show images of Benin bronzes in Dresden’s Museum für Völkerkunde with the text “Missing in Benin.” Ogboh was commissioned to create the posters by the museum, which possesses five Benin bronzes bought in London between 1899 and 1904.
