Artist Talk with Tuli Mekondjo

November 18, 2022 @ 18:00 - 20:00

Tuli Mekondjo (b.1982, Angola) is a self-taught Namibian artist who works with mixed media including embroidery, photo transfer, paint, resin and mahangu (millet) grain – a Namibian food staple. Drawing on colonial and war-time photographic archives, Mekondjo’s practice explores Namibian history and identity politics. Spirituality is an increasingly important element in her work, and she extends her textured media into performance.

Mekondjo has exhibited in multiple exhibitions and fairs in Namibia, South Africa, Côte d’Ivoire, France, Germany and the UK. Tuli Mekondjo is the recipient of the prestigious DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program in 2022.

The event will be held in a hybrid format. For online participation please use the following link:
