An encounter with artist Hadassa Ngamba, in residence at the HISK Ghent
Hadassa Ngamba is interested in the cartographic arrangements of former African colonial territories, particularly the DRC, and the way in which these spaces have been submerged and confiscated by imperial and capitalist systems.
In particular, she attacks the indicators of capitalism and, through her work, she challenges the signals of a system that she considers to be failing and unbalanced.
Her current work analyses and investigates the cartographies of Katanga and Kongo Central.
Hadassa Ngamba completed a residency at the AfricaMuseum in January 2020. There she conducted research in the departments of geology and history.
During this MuseumTalk, she will address the theme of Congolese cartography and access to archives.
