Description : Artist Talk with Guy Woueté and Sorana Munsya
Language: French Location: BHM BE YouTube
Artist Guy Woueté and curator Sorana Munsya enter into discussion about Guy’s creative process and the social topics that their work has in common. They’ll be talking about the (lack of) knowledge and (mis-)information about (neo-)colonialism, about social justice movements (as also explored in Guy’s current performance work En Quête des Marges Fluctuantes) and the uplift and raise in collective consciousness that such movements have experienced in recent months, and about the art that inspires them both. This conversation will be held in French and moderated by Eric Cyuzuzo.
Guy Woueté: Guy Woueté (1980) comes from Cameroon and the colonial past of his homeland plays a major role in his work.

He completed his residency at the Rijksacademie Amsterdam in 2010 and studied at ERG academy in Brussels, where he also teaches. In 2018 he also had a solo exhibition at Enough Room for Space, Drogenbos. His work is exhibited worldwide, recently at Lumbumbashi Bienal (2019) and the 5th Addis Foto Fest (2018). Sorana Munsya: Sorana Munsya is a Congolese curator and psychologist living in Brussels. In her curatorial practice and writings, she is concerned with the connections between art and individual as well as collective healing strategies or practices. Specialized in contemporary visual art created by african artists, she was the assistant curator of the 5th Lubumbashi Biennale of Contemporary Art. She writes for many art catalogues and art magazines such as Hart, the 12th Bamako Encounters catalogue etc. She recently curated the first solo exhibition of the congolese artist Leonard Pongo at Bozar, Brussels.
