(N)tóngá means “needle” or “construction site” in Lingala and therefore refers to the informal course that characterises Kinshasa's evolution to date. The impact of colonialism and the influence it has had on the architecture of the third largest city on the African continent are the focus of the exhibition. The featured artists depict the working methods and production processes that allow the people of Kinshasa to go against an imposed vision of the city and its identity.

Sam Samiee: A Garden of Clouds
09.09.2022 — 31.12.2022
The exhibition A Garden of Clouds by painter Sam Samiee explores processes of symbolic social ‘anchoring’ in different times — under different names — and amid a dream-scape of clouds.
A Garden of Clouds is inspired by a close engagement with the Rotterdam Stadsarchief, to look at the construction of our Cool neighborhood in the 1870s, following cholera and tuberculosis epidemics. During this time, the botanical garden and Clinical School (1828–1866) were transformed into a newly built ...

YANGO/biennale de Kinshasa: Toko zela lobi te
13.07.2022 — 14.08.2022
The present is our only solid platform. The brilliance of daybreak, the opening of closed eyelids, the nightmares strangling the deepest night, are each in turn demanding our presence.It all starts with the unequivocal assertion “We Will not Await Tomorrow!” Tomorrow, with its miraculous promise of pie in the sky, will never appear. The future constantly steals away from us, sneaky as a thief. It hosts a hope, which evaporates like a mirage. In the end, the status quo prevails. Future anticipations and planning repeat the past and prevent the real advent of things. The future obliterates the present, the only time fully available to us. The unpredictable dwells in the present: in what we do with it, unencumbered by obstacles or promises. The present bears all potential and possible creations, actions, and life. It forges uncharted territories, unique and first-time stories, a day-to-day existence we are free to invent. The present is constructive, connecting the mind to the earth.
12th Berlin Biennale
11.06.2022 — 18.09.2022
The 12th Berlin Biennale, curated by artist and thinker Kader Attia, will take place from 11 June to 18 September 2022 in various venues across the city.This edition will continue Attia’s engagement with and inquiry into processes of decolonisation and decoloniality, through the notion of ‘repair’: of objects and physical injuries, as well as of individual and societal traumas. Engaging artists, thinkers, activists and audiences alike, the 12th Berlin Biennale will reflect on art’s agency as a form of critical care and repair in the face of colonial legacies and the climate emergency, around the following set of questions: ‘How can the decolonization of art be conceived – from the restitution of plundered goods to an anticolonial culture of memory? What role can non-Western feminist movements play in the reappropriation of history and identity? How are the climate crisis and colonialism related, and how can resource extraction be resisted and native knowledges acknowledged to preserve ecosystems?’‘I am often asked: What comes after decolonial thinking?’ Attia says in a statement; ‘However, I’m less concerned with what comes after than with the fact that it is an ongoing conversation in the here and now, a series of acts of repair taking place in different spheres of society.’Attia grew up in France and Algeria and later studied in Paris and Barcelona – he now lives and works in Berlin and Paris. Attia founded multidisciplinary arts space La Colonie in Paris in 2016, which hosted lectures and workshops engaged with debates around decolonisation. It closed in July 2020, with the artist launching an appeal to help fund a new venue.

Living traces, a bridging project between Brussels and Kinshasa
18.03.2022 — 18.03.2023
Tuesday 22 March sees the inauguration in the Democratic Republic of Congo of “Living traces, a bridging project between Brussels and Kinshasa” which will take place in the two capitals between March 2022 and 2023. Led by KANAL-Centre Pompidou with the support of partners, artists, and committed curators, the project has been conceived as part of the economic and cultural mission of the regional government in Kinshasa scheduled for next week. The starting point is a reflection on the 60 years of independence of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. A scrutiny of both the DRC past and present as well as its links to Belgium. The people who have conceived the project explore the colonial legacy and its impact. What has survived and is still alive in both of these countries today? “We are aware that the work on 'living traces' is not univocal and that there are multiple aspects to the appropriation of the colonial heritage that are both emotional and militant. We decided therefore to give all these voices an opportunity to express themselves and to create a platform of exchange, dialogue and artistic expression that would allow us to build the project”, stated Yves Goldstein, director general of KANAL. Living Traces is a journey, a multi-faceted and multi-directional project that will include a combination of paintings, installations, music, dance, films and sound creations by contemporary Belgian and Congolese artists. Starting with the exhibition KINSHASA -(N)TONGA - Entre futur et poussière, which will be held at the Académie des Beaux-Art de Kinshasa from 22 March to 22 April 2022. The aim of this exhibition, that is presented by Twenty Nine Studio and Traumnovelle on the initiative of Sammy Baloji, is to reveal the city of Kinshasa via the many different 'ways of doing' and 'producing'. It will highlight the works of Kinshasa's artists, who are imbued with a powerful imagination about this shared heritage inherited from colonisation. Other guest artists exhibiting in Living Traces include Sammy Baloji, Agnès Lalau, Pascale Martine Tayou, Michèle Magema, Soraya Lutangu Bonaventure,, and many others. The narrative of the project is the work of the curators Sorana Munsya and Evelyn Simons, Johnny Leya and Twenty Nine Studio, Gia Abrassart and Joelle Sambi in partnership with Vrije Universiteit Brussels, Académie des Beaux-Arts de Kinshasa, Horst Festival, CIVA, Cinematek and Café Congo, among others. Living traces is an inventory, a long-term artistic escape that takes its time and marks the beginning of a process of reflection during which it will need to deconstruct, discuss, and recompose bearing in mind and heart the traces of colonial history and the living impulse to create common, respectful, and shared narratives. The desire to invest in a subject of this kind understandably imposes the indispensable inclusion of art, artists, and cultural sites in the current debate on the subject of colonial heritage and the accompanying task of decolonisation.

11.03.2022 — 01.05.2022
The multimedia exhibition Pool Malebo explores the fictional potential of contemporary depictions of unfamiliarity. Embedding contemporary images and narratives into fantastic and speculative scenes leads to a discovery of the act of representing the other as a process of making it exotic, constructing meanings and producing realities. We process layers of real and imaginary pictorial worlds that shape our collective (un)conscious, by means of a process of strategic auto-exoticization. This leads to jointly made paintings that are expanded in the exhibition with scenographic interventions, digital painting and experimental videos to become a multi-dimensional, multimedia fabulation. Otherness is not merely presented or criticized, but worked upon in a shared process that asks as to its opportunities for designing different, better or simply interesting images that can become part of our imaginary world.

Enjaillement à Babi: Aboudia
19.02.2022 — 12.03.2022
Galerie Cécile Fakhoury (Abidjan, Dakar, Paris) is pleased to present the solo exhibition of the painter Aboudia for the first time in Paris.Revealed in 2011 by his paintings depicting Ivorian youth in the turmoil of the post-election crisis, Aboudia has established himself in a decade as the leader of a generation of Abidjanese visual artists who have become heralds of the challenges overcome by the Ivorian working class in the aftermath of the war.A decade later, the children of war have grown up. The weapons have disappeared from the canvas, but the works of the artist-phenomenon Aboudia have remained faithful to this urgency, to this imperative of survival. The recurrence of graffiti, the superimposition of images and fleeting gestures are the direct components of the urban genesis of his work, the legacy of a time when the artist had only the walls to express himself.

Omar Victor Diop
28.01.2022 — 22.05.2022
The striking photographs of Senegalese contemporary artist Omar Victor Diop (b. 1980) capture modern African sensibilities, and often focus on a recasting of history, the representation of diasporic experiences and global politics of black resistance. Combining photography with other art forms, Diop’s remarkable body of work includes fine art, fashion, design, and portrait photography. Using artistic self-portraiture as a key tool to engage with complex representational politics, community embodiment and ideas of self-fashioning, his practice is characterized by meticulously staged, dramatic imagery in which the artist himself appears as the main visual protagonist and interlocutor.

Existing Otherwise - The Future of Coexistence (Workshop with Emily Hunt)
14.01.2022 — 17.01.2022
An artist with a diverse background, Hector became aware of the power of the image when, at the age of 17, he began to draw in the press in Benin. It was 1987, during the period of the dictatorial military regime when freedom of speech and expression was almost non-existent. Without even perceiving the meaning at the time, he was already a committed artist. A status that he does not feel the need to claim; the expression of his art has always been free, eclectic and without taboos.

Beninese painter and illustrator, Hector SONON was born in Cotonou in 1970. An aesthete, but above all a critic, Hector defines himself as a product of society. Society whose facts and gestures, smells and perfumes nourish his inspiration and open his eyes to a wide variety of subjects. As a result of these observations, his art is meant to be questioning, even inquisitive, with the aim of drawing the attention of his fellow human beings to elements that usually leave them indifferent.

Wolfgang Tillmans: Fragile
08.10.2021 — 14.11.2021
It is the interpersonal with all its shortcomings that fascinates Wolfgang Tillmans. He sees the acceptance of the fragility that defines us as individuals and our interpersonal relationships as a strength. He uses failures, ruptures and fragility as an impetus to develop new processes. They point to the imperfect nature of our lives and reveal unsuspected perspectives on life's materiality. In this sense, 'Fragile' refers to the precious moments of life and the value of social and family ties, especially in times of social and political instability.

Tillmans's artistic work is based on an irrepressible curiosity, intensive preparatory research and continual engagement with the technical and aesthetic potential of the medium of photography. His visual language is characterized by a close observation that opens up a deeply humane approach to our surroundings. Familiarity and empathy, friendship, community and closeness can be seen and felt in his pictures.
