The exhibition Kabbo Ka Muwala: The Girl’s Basket presents works by 20 artists reflecting on narratives of migration, and was conceived as an itinerant project taking place in Zimbabwe, Uganda and Germany, artistically exploring perspectives on the multitude of migration processes in and from southern and eastern Africa primarily through the eyes of artists from these regions. A wide range of media, including photo works, videos, mixed media, and installations will propose alternative reflections to clichéd representations of a mass exodus to the Global North.

Participating artists: Berry Bickle (ZW), Jodi Bieber (ZA), The Border Farm Project (ZW/ZA), Rehema Chachage (TZ), Mimi Cherono Ng’ok (KE), Kudzanai Chiurai (ZW), Anawana Haloba (ZM/NO), Kiluanji Kia Henda (AO), Wanja Kimani (KE/ET/UK), Miriam Syowia Kiambi (KE), Gerald Machona (ZW/ZA), Immy Mali (UG), Nástio Mosquito (AO), Victor Mutelekesha (ZM/NO), MwangwiHutter (DE/KE), NakivArt/Anke Fischer (UG/DE), Emma Wolukau Wanambwa (UG/UK), Xenson (UG), Helen Zeru (ET), Rut Karin Zettergren (SE)
