Laboratoire Kontempo - KINZONZI 2.0

28 November 2022

The rarely seen side of Kinshasa took centre stage at Laboratoire Kontempo’s Kinzonzi 2.0. The three-day showcase featured digital artworks by six Congolese artists, along with artistic videos, artist talks, radio shows for exchanges on local perspectives of Kinshasa and international artistic trends. 

Topics included stereotypes in the representation and perception of the Congolese art scene, post-colonial realities and their power dynamics, and linguistic, intellectual and epistemic hierarchies. The live screenings for the showcase were attended by 135 people and they reached 122 people online.
