Cassette and digital cover design for KMRU's album, 'Temporary Stored'. In 'Temporary Stored', Kenyan sound artist Joseph Kamaru uses field recordings from the archives of the Royal Museum for Central Africa in Tervuren to question the importance of the sound archive in the history of colonial violence. The restitution of stolen art objects is causing heated debates in the European museum landscape – however, the question of how to deal with immaterial heritage is just as pressing. For Kamaru, sounds play a central role: passed down from generation to generation, they create a connection between the past and the future.
