In an attempt to learn German, artist Helena Uambembe investigates words associated with German history and colonization.

Helena Uambembe, born in 1994 in Pomfret, South Africa, is an artist of Angolan descent whose work is heavily influenced by her heritage and experiences. Her parents fled from the civil war in Angola and her father was a soldier in the 32nd Battalion of the South African Defence Force. Uambembe's artistic practice explores themes of her domestic and Angolan heritage.

She obtained her BTech in 2018 from Tshwane University of Technology in South Africa and is a member of the collective Kutala Chopeto. In 2019, Uambembe won the David Koloane Award and completed a two-month residency at the Bag Factory in Johannesburg. She has exhibited at Art Basel Statement where she was awarded the Baloise Art Prize in 2022.

In 2023, Uambembe was awarded the DAAD Visual Arts Fellowship in Berlin, Germany, which supports international artists to develop their work with a residency program. With a unique artistic voice rooted in her personal experience and heritage, Helena Uambembe continues to explore and push the boundaries of contemporary art.

The Performance Lecture is an Intervention Space Art and Academia and part of of the workshop 'Repairing' Modernity? Artistic Historicization as an Intervening Practice, organized by research project C06.
