Artists in Norway Recreate 'Congo Village'

Norwegian-Sudanese artist Mohamed Ali Fadlabi and Swedish artist Lars Cuznor have recreated the Congo Village, an exhibit featured at the 1914 Jubilee Exhibition in Norway, for the country’s centennial celebration. The village was supposed to model a “fantastic African village” for the public’s viewing. The artists are looking to retell the story of the “human zoo” to prevent it from being swept away by historical amnesia.
