Extended artistic strategies
Haus der Statistik: Werkstatt – Admission free – Start 7 p.m.
Artist talk Prisca Tankwey, Paulvi Ngimbi
The artists Prisca Tankwey and Paulvi Ngimbi from Kinshasa present their artistic approach as a duo; a sculptural and conceptual approach and its location in the art scene of Kinshasa. They will also talk about the tension between academism and the independent art scene in Kinshasa and its influence on their own work: on the one hand as assistant professors at the Kinshasa Academy of Arts, which represents a very Eurocentric-classical understanding of art, and on the other hand as contemporary multimedia artists.
In this context, they will present the artistic strategies they use to deal with these contrasts.
