In Kenya and internationally, there are very few publications from East Africa in certain areas such as art catalogues and artists’ books as well as academic publishing. Only very few Kenyan artists have had a catalogue of their work, and only few Kenyan intellectuals working in the Humanities have had their major work published locally or, more likely, internationally. To fill this gap, Goethe Institut, together with their partner Native Intelligence, are starting their own book series. The series is dedicated to the protagonists of the East African artistic, activist and intellectual scenes. It focuses on Art and the Humanities – though not limited to these only. They will exclusively publish material that is not taken up by other publishers.
After having launched the first volume of the book series, dedicated to the group of female writers around AMKA, in June 2011, they are now launching three new books by the artists Peterson Kamwathi, Sam Hopkins and Ato Malinda.
The artists will be present at the book launch.
Opening Wednesday 30th November at 5pm
The exhibition will run until Thursday 8th December 2011
This is a joint conceptual project bringing together artists using new media as a means of expression, with the aim of exploring the possibilities of animation as an art form in the Kenyan context. It will be an attempt to introduce local artists and audiences to this art form.
The long term plan is to encourage local artists to participate in global new media events such as “The One Minutes” and “Documentation ”.
During the exhibition, the four artists will hold a public workshop on simple animation that will involve artists & media students.
