Intervention Space | Filming Ghosts, Silences, Hidden Things. Screening and Talk with Nnenna Onuoha
Event in English spoken language | free admission | registration is not necessary
The films and videos of the Ghanaian-Nigerian researcher, filmmaker and artist Nnenna Onuoha centre Afrodiasporic voices to explore monumental silences surrounding the histories and afterlives of colonialism across West Africa, Europe and the United States, asking: how do we remember, which pasts do we choose to perform and why? How do we deal with silences and absences of the past in the present? Her work also focuses on archiving Black experience in the present to chronicle how, amidst all this, we practice care and repair for ourselves and each other.
The screening shows a selection of Nnenna Onuoha’s recent films and videos, among them The A-Team (2021) and Baby Picture (2022) as well as the filmic exploration of the ghosts of history at Berlin‘s Schloss Friedrichsfelde and its entanglement with enslavement.
Nnenna Onuoha, currently based in Berlin, is a doctoral researcher in Media Anthropology at Harvard University in Cambridge and Global History at the University of Potsdam. Her work has been shown at the KW Institute for Contemporary Art in Berlin, Kunstverein Hamburg and Galerie im Turm Berlin.
Moderated by Birgit Eusterschulte.
