GOETHE INSTITUT RESIDENCY | NAIROBI

October 24 – Christmas, 2019

Honoured to be nominated for the first Goethe Institute visual arts residency of its kind, in association with Sana Sanaa and Brush Tu Art Studio.

This “twinning” artist residency is unique because of its focus on cultural exchange: one artist is selected from Germany (lucky me) to live and work in Nairobi for 2 months & another is selected from Kenya to do the same in Berlin: Moira Bushkimani. We were fortunate to both be in Berlin & Nairobi at the same time.  And these are our hands.

Special thanks to Michael Maria Müller, the founder of Artificial Image Berlin and Goethe Institut Kenya for this extraordinary opportunity.

More thanks in this INSTAGRAM post.
