News March – April 2016

February 24, 2016

We are very happy that History in Progress Uganda will return to the gallery in March with their new exhibition titled City Remixing. The opening of the exhibition will take place on Thursday, March 3rd at 5 PM.

City Remixing presents photographs made of and in Kampala through time, as seen by 5 different photographers. It shows and wants to make us think about progress and development of Kampala, and the possibilities and limitations of photographic visualisations of urban environments at large.

The opening of the exhibition in Kampala will also be the world wide launch of the fifth volume in the Ebifananyi book series, developed and designed by Andrea Stultiens, published jointly by HIPUganda and Paradox.

In April KABBO KA MUWALA – The Girl’s Basket. Migration and Mobility in Contemporary Art in Southern and Eastern Africa will open at the gallery.

The exhibition artistically explores 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.

This itinerant project is based on the collaboration between Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg, National Gallery of Zimbabwe in Harare, Makerere University in Kampala, and Städtische Galerie Bremen, and is funded by the TURN Fund of the German Federal Cultural Foundation.

The opening it Kampala will take place on April 14th.
