Kapwani Kiwanga

»Zum Einstieg hier ein Zitat. Sant sita vellest optas volorenat quibus alutiam.«

— Kapwani Kiwanga

ABOUT

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 it’s characteristic propensity toward mutation. Afrofuturism, anti-colonial struggle and it’s memory, belief systems, vernacular and popular culture are but some of the research areas which inspire her practice.
