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.
