Ovizire · Somgu: From Where Do We Speak?
StArt Art Gallery, Windhoek, Namibia06 Nov 2020 - 25 Nov 2020
StArt Art Gallery and From Where Do We Speak? (FWDWS) announces Ovizire · Somgu: From Where Do We Speak?. This is an exhibition of artworks by Namibian artists, workshop facilitators and participants.
The most recent phase of this project undertaken by FWDWS incorporates trans-historic educational workshops with youth across selected regions in Namibia. These workshops were developed to facilitate artistic explorations of the colonial past and decolonial futures in Namibia. The idea behind these workshops was to generate community dialogues and expressions regarding legacies of colonialism, colonial photographic archives, inter-generational negotiation, restorative justice, multi-directional memory and identity politics in Namibia, among other topics.
The results of this process will be on display at the Ovizire · Somgu: From Where Do We Speak? exhibition at the Frans Nambinga Arts Training Centre in Havana, Windhoek from 6 – 25 November 2020. Visitors will be able to engage with the exhibition across several events.
