Artist Talk with Zanele Muholi

Celebrated by the international art scene, exhibited in major museums and galleries: Zanele Muholi's work excites and inspires art lovers:inside the world. Growing up in South Africa's queerphobic society, Muholi, who:identifies as non-binary, has made Black LGBTQIA* people visible through her:his art. The series "Somnyama Ngonyama/Hail the dark Lioness," which has been shown at the Venice Biennale and the Tate Modern in London, among other venues, gathers proud portraits and self-portraits of people affected by prejudice and discrimination. Muholi thus gives them a face and a voice, opposes exclusion as a visual activist with artistic means.

In conversation with Maxi Broecking and Christina Bauernfeind, Zanele Muholi provides insight into her:his artistic work as a means of self-empowerment and a vehicle for healing and changing power structures in queer-phobic spaces.

The interview will be held in English.

In addition to the Artist Talk, you can also visit the current exhibition "Tracing a Seeping Terrain. Eloïse Bonneviot & Anne de Boer" at the Heidelberger Kunstverein.
