Anguezomo Mba Bikoro: On The Ruins Of Paradise: Archival Legacies of Women's Movements in Colonial Empire

Online Lecture
2.00 pm CET

Anguezomo Mba Bikoro is a conceptual artist from the region of Woleu-Ntem in North Gabon and is presently based in Berlin. The artist merges archeology, sonic radio, writing, textiles, sculpture, live art performances, film & archives for immersive installations. The work analyses processes of power & science fictions in historical archives critically engaging in migrational struggles and colonial memory. The artist creates environments for alternative narratives and future speculations of colonial resistance movements led by African women of the German, British and French diaspora and indigenous communities. Their most recent significant contributions have been shown in Havana Biennale (2019); Dak'art Biennale Senegal (2012 & 2018); Smithsonian Museum of African Art Washington DC (2013); Biennale De Bogota (2013); Tiwani Contemporary London (2012); Kalao Pan African Galleries Bilbao (2014); 798 Art District Gallery Beijing (2015); Museum of African Art Johannesburg (2011); Michael Stevenson Gallery Cape Town (2011); Tate Britain London (2009); Oxford Museum UK (2014); Bedfordbury Gallery London (2010) and South London Gallery (2010)
