Take me home - خذني إلى بيتي
The bust of Nefertiti, one of the most widely copied works of ancient Egypt, is the subject of Nora Al-Badri’s work “Take me home - خذني إلى بيتي” . Once located in the Tell el-Amarna archaeological site, Egypt, it now finds itself on display at the Neues Museum, its new “home”, as a cultural symbol of Berlin. Looted in a colonial expedition by German archaeologist Ludwig Borchardt, Nefertiti is an object in exile whose claim of ownership is also extended to its digital representation. Released in 2019, after a 3 year long legal battle, the 3D scan of the Nefertiti’s bust is now available for public use, highlighting how the process of decolonization also extends to the digital realm. In her contribution to the exhibition Al-Badri offers access to the 3D scan and an unlimited edition poster.
