[French original with English translation]
The Belgian-Rwandan artist Laura Nsengiyumva lives in Brussels. She won the first prize at the Kunstsalon Ghent in 2011, and the second prize at the Dakar Biennale in 2012. Nsengiyumva explores themes such as diasporic experience, multiple identity, North-South relations and empathy. She speaks about these topics through images and interventions on colonized spaces. Her transcultural view of history is based on human stories that invite us to find what brings us together.
This talk was given as part of the workshop Memory / History: The Power of Decolonialization, Art and Interventions (with Monique Mbeka Phoba, Laura Nsengiyumva, Womba Konga aka Pitcho).
