Talk with Nomaduma Rosa Masilela

In their talk, Nomaduma will discuss their own projects and curatorial practice - looking at their ongoing interest in the fractal nature of human relations and cosmologies, and their complicities and conflicts. They will adopt the artist-scholar Denise Ferreria da Silva's methodology of "re/de/composition" to return to their own unfinished artistic research project about a collective public and performance art movement, in order to collectively unpack the assumptions that are woven into our questions, and imagine methodologies how not to entrap ourselves and others in the institutions that already live within us.

Nomaduma Rosa Masilela is a transdisciplinary artist, curator, and writer engaged in collective work, strategy, and ludic play; the related and respective ephemera of exile and xenophobia; and the ambivalent natures of authenticity, history, and identity production. Masilela organizes these ideas in objects, words, gatherings/workshops, exhibitions, site specific interventions, and long-term research projects. Masilela holds a Masters from Columbia University in New York, and has had an extensive international curatorial and written practice.
