The participating artists live and work in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. We get insights into the different creative worlds and temperaments of the young artists. In color-intensive painting, textile, collage, multimedia, and photography we encounter diverse expressions and multi-perspective approaches, often with direct reference to the country.
We would like to thank Rebecca Yeong Ae Mzengi Corey from ‘Nafasi Art Space’, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and Thomas Schlottmann from Kunsthaus FRISE in Hamburg for their help in selecting the artists,
with guitar, percussion, and vocals RemiTone lets sound a mixture of Afrobeat and rhythms of the traditional Gonga style from Tanzania. He talks about his home country and the people of Tanzania in the local language, Swahili.
