Curator, writer and filmmaker Renée Mboya (from Nairobi, Kenya) is our current guest in the Reading Residency program. Her work is concerned with memory and specifically the use of autobiography in contemporary narratives to rehabilitate misrepresentations in the historical. Her current project is one that looks at a single source, the documentary Africa Addio (1966), as a violent and ahistorical source but curiously one that in the last few decades has been taken at face value as a way to learn and speak about ‘Africa'.
Renée Mboya was part of De Appel Curatorial Program in the 2015/2016 edition and was one of the visiting curators of the Stroom Invest Week 2018.
