GOETHE INSTITUT RESIDENCY | NAIROBI

Natascha Stellmach + Moira Bushkimani

Selfie, Berlin – Nairobi Twinning Residents Natascha Stellmach + Moira Bushkimani, 2019

From October 24, 2019
Honoured to have been 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. That wonderful artist and human is Moira Bushkimani and she’s currently in Berlin. At the end of October we’ll both be in Nairobi. 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.
