On September 22nd, the exhibition “Amahoro Burundi” opened its doors in the Hällisch-Fränkisches Museum in Schwäbisch Hall and invited numerous guests on a special journey into the culture and way of life of Burundi.

An impressive start to the opening event was provided by the charismatic Musician Moy set. With his captivating drum sounds and an interactive show, he immediately captivated visitors.

“Ntukagaye ico utagaraguye.” / “Don’t judge the inside by the outside.”

With this Burundian proverb, Muna Hassaballah, SEZ, illustrated the complexity of a society and culture. It reminds us that the exhibition offers snapshots and appeals to dialogue and exchange with each other so as not to paint a one-sided or stereotypical picture. Rather, this exhibition is intended to encourage visitors to look behind the facades and get to know the diversity of Burundi.

Mayor Bullinger expressed his enthusiasm about the exhibition:

"The Special exhibition of the Baden-Württemberg Development Cooperation Foundation brings us closer to Burundi, informs us and encourages us to think and hopefully rethink.”

This appeal encourages people to look beyond their own horizons and to appreciate the diversity and special features of other cultures.

The exhibition “Amahoro Burundi” brings various aspects of Burundian culture and way of life closer to a broad audience and provides information about the existing country partnership between Baden-Württemberg and Burundi.

You can visit the exhibition in the Hällisch-Fränkisches Museum in Schwäbisch Hall until October 22nd. In the coming weeks, the exhibition will be accompanied by a varied supporting program, including a Lecture by Dr. Déogratias Maruhukiro on the topic “Burundi and its history of conflict. “On understanding ethnic conflicts as a result of colonialism” on October 11, 2023.
