An important day last week as joined the official handover and repatriation of six Indigenous ancestors from .skd to their Indigenous community representatives.

Australian Ambassador to Germany, H.E. Philip Green OAM, was joined by Saxony State Minister Barbara Klepsch, the Prime Minister's Special Envoy for the Arts & .museum Director Leontine Meijer van Mensch.

In the last years, .museum has repatriated 89 ancestors back to their descendants in Australia. In doing so, they take a leading role in Europe in working with the Indigenous peoples and the Australian government to ameliorate the wrongs of the past.

You can read Ambassador Green's speech, in which he commends the Traditional Custodians for the strength they have shown by travelling and taking on the heavy responsibility to represent their communities, and to receive their ancestors and bring them home via:

From an interview excerpt with H.E. PHILIP GREEN OAM, Australian Ambassador to Germany:

"I can't tell you how powerful this work is, in terms of inviting people into this house to see a modern, innovative Australia, not the traditional, perhaps crusty, style of diplomacy. And for that not only to have a contemporary edge, but for it to have an Indigenous edge is extremely important.

There isn't a person, I don't think, who comes into this house who isn't struck by this massive work, who isn't struck by the work and wants to know about it.

It's fabulous to talk about Christian Thompson, who's not only a leading Australian Indigenous artist, but also a post-graduate of Oxford University, a person of considerable stature in the world of scholarship and art. To be able to present that as, if you like, the iconic work of this residence."

DEKADE: 10 Years of Michael Reid Berlin
featuring... DJIRRIRRA WUNUŊMURRA YUKUWA

The sacred clan design featured in these works is 'Buyku', fishtrap imagery of Djirrirra's clan, and was passed down to her to paint from her father.

The Buyku miny’tji is an intricate diamond pattern; gridded, angular, and mathematically precise. It is the Dhalwaŋu clan design of the Yirritja moiety, a design given to the artist by her father, the renowned artist and Dhalwaŋu clan leader, Yaŋgarriny Wunuŋmurra (1932–2003).

One of the metaphorical overviews of the works featuring this design is the union between the different subgroups of the Dhalwaŋu clan in the ancestral cycle of regular fishtrap ceremonies they join together in celebrating. These gatherings are ceremonial but also social and educational.

As 'DEKADE I' enters its final week in Berlin, we are spotlighting the extraordinary works by Maningrida Arts & Culture artists that are currently on show in Berlin and Sydney.

Here you can see two elegant carvings by Joy Garlbin, Djomi (1267-22) and Djomi (922-22).

The Djomi figure is a mermaid like spirit with a fish tail that lives in a fresh water stream that flows out to the sea cliff near Maningrida.

"This Djomi is my dreaming, I got permission from my djunguys to make this Djomi design. For me I always ask my djunguy permission to paint, because that is our cultural way."

Following on from our last post, here you can see the artist PAUL NABULUMO and fellow Maningrida Arts artists Dudley and Ken Djungkidj visiting important djang* sites on Kulmarru clan estate. Pictured here at Dirdbim (moon) djang.

* Djang is an ongoing, eternal, life-giving transformative power that accounts for every aspect of existence. It also refers to the creation ancestor, the country where spirit resides, and to ceremonial designs and songs that represent that being. It is what powers our art.

David Wenham on TAMARA DEAN
an extract from her Artist Monograph featured in :

“Dean possesses the keen eye of a photographer, the physical instinct and impulse of a choreographer and the narrative storytelling ability of a film director,” writes David Wenham when reflecting on the captivating work of Tamara Dean.

“Dean uses her camera not only to feature the symbiosis between humans and their environment but also to highlight the destructive effect we can have on the environment that we depend upon for our survival,” continues Wenham.

“The fact that she can create images of heavenly beauty out of post-apocalyptic climate scenarios, and simultaneously stimulate both amazement and disturbance, is no small feat.”

Tamara Dean has been capturing the intimate relationship between people interacting with the environment for over a decade. In her first monograph, published by Thames and Hudson, the artist offers generous insight on her critically acclaimed practice.

JOY GARLBIN is a Kunibidji and Kuninjku artist whose work predominately features the Djomi djang site. She is a Traditional Owner of the Maningrida township and been highly politically active in protecting her country.

She started to make mimih spirit figures under the apprenticeship of Crusoe Kurddal in the 2000s, and has exhibited with Maningrida Arts since 2004.

'Maningrida Arts & Culture is based on Kunibídji country in Arnhem Land in Australia’s Northern Territory. The area where artists live encompasses 7,000 square kilometres of land and sea, and over 100 clan estates, where people speak more than 12 distinct languages.

Aboriginal people in this region are still on country, surviving and resilient because their country is the centre of their epistemology, their belief system, culture – djang.'

‘I very much welcome and thank Michael Reid Berlin for what it does here.

For promoting Australian art, for focusing in particular on Indigenous art and culture. While you are a commercial institution, you are also one that wants to add to the fabric of Australian engagement with Germany, and bring something very fine and special to German eyes.

Your gallery distinguishes itself by the degree to which it is actively enriching German life with a very particular part of Australian culture, and I thank you for that.’

DEKADE: 10 Years of Michael Reid Berlin
Opening Tomorrow

Before the exhibition opens, head to our website to ready 'The Berlin Story' to trace the history of the gallery's development here in the German capital.

Those who have visited the gallery over the last 10 years would be very familiar with the facade of the building pictured here. These images are from the address' former life as an electronics store.

Thanks to the man in pictured the left image, Dieter Stöckel, we know a great deal more about the history of the building, as his parents operated a clothing repair business and laundrette out of what is now our gallery space.

The Stöckel family operated their business here until June 1945. Luckily Dieter still resides in the neighbourhood and has been a vital source of information of pre- and post-war life in the area.

'Works on Paper from West Arnhem Land'
from INJALAK ARTS

'In the small west Arnhem land community of Gunbalanya, hundreds of ancient artworks exist alongside modern life.

The community was formally a mission known as Oenpelli, but at Injalak Hill, the region's ancient history is inscribed on its rock walls.

The region is home to the world's longest continuous artistic tradition..."These paintings are thousands of years old. People used to come here in wet season times and stay for six months until the wet season stopped, and they'd go down." - local artist Benson Nagurrgurrba

Mr Nagurrgurrba said that artists would explain their dreamtime stories and life lessons to children as they painted. While some of the paintings date back more than 30,000 years, others were drawn more recently.' from

Injalak Arts Gunbalanya
Michael Reid Berlin is commencing its 2022 programme with the international debut of
INJALAK ARTS! 'Works on Paper from Western Arnhem Land' is on view in the Gallery and online until February 26.

Located in the town of Gunbalanya, 10km from the East Alligator River and the border of Kakadu National Park, the artists here draw inspiration from the extraordinary wealth of rock art West Arnhem Land has to offer.

Celebrating the traditions and imagery of the Bininj people, the eight works on paper in this show epitomise the clean lines, exceptional detail and saturation of natural colour for which Injalak artists are known.
