This book aims to reactivate the archival material by Ulli Beier, co-founder of the Black Orpheus Magazine and the Mbari Clubs in Nigeria in the early 1960s. To better understand the formation of modernities from a transcultural perspective, the book gives an overview on the exciting times of the Mbari Artists and Writers Club in Ibadan through the archival documents.
This book is published in the context of the exhibition "museum global. Microhistories of an Ex-centric Modernism" by Kunstsammlung NRW, Düsseldorf and is the first collaboration between the Centre of Black Culture and International Understanding in Osogbo (Nigeria) and Iwalewahaus, University of Bayreuth.
