Yes, am I in Africa? No, but I am in the Africa Museum in Olsberg-Gevelinghausen. And the exhibition here is devoted entirely to culture on the black continent.

The family of Gerhard Vogt, who built the museum, has had a close relationship with Africa since 1886 through missionary work. Today, Vogt presents museum visitors with a cross-section of African art that his relatives have collected over many years. African art often, but not always exclusively, has religious significance. By means of their art objects, the people of Africa wish to establish a connection between the people and supernatural powers: the spirits of the ancestors, the gods, as well as the powers associated with the forest, bush and water. The Africa Museum presents wooden objects - from simple bowls to masks to statues of various cultures - as well as jewelry objects, metalwork, and wrought-iron works.
