Art and the Writing of History
Presentation of artists Lhola Amira and Eric Magassa and panel discussion
Thursday, 12 September 6–7 pm
Gothenburg City Library
Meet artists Lhola Amira and Eric Magassa in a conversation moderated by film researcher Jyoti Mistry.
Amira lives and works in Capetown, South Africa, and is currently featured in a solo show at Skövde Art Museum. Her work Lagom: Breaking Bread with the Self-Righteous deals with Sweden’s role in the colonization of Africa.
Magassa is based in Gothenburg and is one of the participating artists in Part of the Labyrinth, contributing a site-specific work for the Franska Tomten, a place in Gothenburg that has historical connections to the island of Saint-Barthélemy and Swedish colonial history.
The film Lagom: Breaking Bread with the Self-Righteous will be screened before the talk.
The programme is a collaboration between Gothenburg International Biennial for Contemporary Art and Skövde Art Museum.
