White walls, neon writing, clean lines: the Musée d’ethnographie de Genève’s new exhibition The Boomerang Effect. The Aboriginal Arts of Australia welcomes its visitors in a space evocative of a contemporary art gallery. Here the MEG unveils one of its finest collections and reveals the wealth of indigenous Australia’s cultural heritage. Visiting this exhibition, we understand how attempts to suppress Aboriginal culture since the 18th century have ended up having the opposite of their desired effect.
