To celebrate the end of the exhibition Anti-Narcissus, CRAC Alsace is pleased to invite you to a performance by Kapwani Kiwanga.

Kapwani Kiwanga uses her training in the social sciences to shape projects in which she plays the part of a researcher. Her method consists in creating systems and protocols that act as filters for observing humanity in all its multiplicity and capacity for change.

For Anti-Narcissus she is presenting a lecture/performance titled AFROGALACTICA: A SHORT HISTORY OF THE FUTURE. Playing the part of an anthropologist somewhere in the future, she explores Afro-Futurism and her involvement in developing the United States of Africa Space Agency. Drawing on the archives of the past, she projects herself into a science-fiction future.


Performance in English (with French subtitles)
