The department of Community and Primary Healthcare of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), in collaboration with Abiye Maternal and Child Health Foundation, celebrated the 2020 World Breastfeeding Week as they encouraged breastfeeding mothers to ensure that they exclusively breastfeed their babies for the first 6 months of life.

Regarding the theme for this year, “Supporting Breastfeeding for a Healthier Planet”, the Head of Department, Dr. Adeyinka Adeniran while speaking with mothers at the Immunization clinic in LASUTH, gave a brief exhortation on the importance of breastfeeding a child exclusively for the first 6 months of life and encouraged that this should continue until the child attains the age of 2 years.

He pointedly noted that this tradition, if strictly adhered to will significantly reduce the current mortality rate in children which world over research has pegged the number to 900,000 lives globally, as at 2019.

While stating the numerous advantages of breastfeeding, Dr Adeniran said ‘it’s a major lifesaver in infants and emphasis should not be restricted to world celebrations only, but should be a continuous onus of professionals in community healthcare, primary healthcare and infant healthcare.

Dr Adeniran further opined when asked how the COVID 19 pandemic may have affected effective breastfeeding, he said, ‘as far as this mode of feeding is concerned, the lockdown culminating from the effect of the pandemic should be a plus for breastfeeding mums.

Reasons being that, they do not have to go to work every day and therefore have more time at their disposal to take care of their children, so, for me, it’s more of a ‘blessing’ as far as breastfeeding is concerned.”

Others present at the awareness campaign for nursing mothers include Dr Yetunde Kuyinu, Consultant, Primary Healthcare; Dr Femi Adebayo, Consultant Primary Healthcare and Dr Kehinde Omolara, Head of Neonatology Unit of the Pediatrics Department.

How the documenta invented the “Zero Hour” in art after 1945

“documenta. Politics and Art” from 18 June 2021 to 9 January 2022

 

BERLIN, GERMANY - Newsaktuell - 1 March 2021 - The documenta owes its rise to the most successful German art exhibition not least to its political dimension: its disassociation from National Socialism and the bloc building of the Cold War. It was informed on the one hand by the supposed attempt to distance itself radically from Nazi cultural politics while at the same time refusing to deal openly with the Nazi past. On the other hand, its politically motivated orientation on the West included a decided aloofness toward and denigration of the socialist art of the "Eastern bloc".

With "documenta. Politics and Art" the Deutsches Historisches Museum takes up the example of the famous exhibition in Kassel to shed light on the manifold interactions between politics and art in the society of the Federal Republic after 1945. Parallel to this, the exhibition "'Divinely Gifted'. National Socialism's favoured artists in the Federal Republic" (27.8.21 -- 6.2.22) presents for the first time an examination of the post-war careers of so-called "divinely gifted" visual artists whom the Nazi authorities, from 1944 on, had deemed to be "indispensable" and were therefore exempt from front-line military service or other work for the war effort.


Raphael Gross, President of the Deutsches Historisches Museum: "With these exhibitions we want to bring to light a new perspective on the history of the Federal Republic in its international context. Both of them correct the notion of a radical aesthetic new beginning, which has often been attributed to the documenta and of which the early documenta framers made extensive use. There were, in fact, unbroken lines leading back to National Socialism. Works by murdered Jewish artists found no room in the early editions of the documenta. And in our exhibition on the previously almost unresearched 'Divinely Gifted', we are showing, conversely, the degree to which this group of visual artists who had been active in the Nazi cultural sector dominated the public space after 1945 and continue to dominate it to this day."
