Kapwani Kiwanga’s (*1978, CA / FR) working method is practice-based, initiated by marginalised or forgotten stories and historical events, which are articulated formally in her sculptures, installations, photographs and videos. The artist contrasts the research with the expressive materiality of her work, with which she refers to socio-political phenomena, syncretism or the global effects of power structures. She questions how the writing of history, authoritarian systems and the generation of knowledge function and undermines the offical understanding of truth by expanding history with popular belief and spirituality.
