Kapwani Kiwanga

Lecture5 July 2018, 19:00Aula, Städelschule, Dürerstraße 10, 60596 Frankfurt am Main

Kapwani Kiwanga’s work often manifests as installations, sound, video, and performance. She intentionally confuses truth and fiction in order to unsettle hegemonic narratives and create spaces in which marginal discourse can flourish. As a trained anthropologist and social scientist, she occupies the role of a researcher in her projects. Her methodology includes fashioning systems and establishing protocols as in scientific experimentation to delineate lenses through which one can observe culture and its characteristic propensity toward mutation. Afrofuturism, anti-colonial struggle and its memory, belief systems, vernacular and popular culture are but some of the research areas which inspire her practice.

Discussing different methods deployed in the artist's practice, Kiwanga will question if formal expressions can create instances which challenge received and learned dynamics of oppression and exclusion and propose alternative dynamics.
