guest curator 2020/2021 My learning is affected by the condition of my life

Aude Christel Mgba is an independent curator and art historian based between the Netherlands and Cameroon. She was a participant of the De Appel 2018/19 curatorial Program. In 2017, Aude worked as an assistant curator for the SUD2017, an international triennial of art in the public space, organized by doual’art, a center for contemporary art, for the city of Douala. She is a member of the Madrassa Collective, a group of eight curators from Africa, Middle East and Europe. She is co-curator of sonsbeek20->24 exhibition, an international exhibition in the city of Arnhem under the Artistic direction of Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung. Aude is a nominee of the fifth edition 2020-2021 of Forecast-Mentorships for Audacious Minds in Berlin; Her project proposal was mentored by Koyo Kouoh.

Aude defines her curatorial practice as an activist decolonial practice which includes research projects and platforms to transcribe, translate and embody ancestral knowledge to heal contemporary traumas of the memory and the body. She specifically engages with forms of knowledge production that expand the notion of writing and tackle the idea of tradition through "objects", myths, cosmogony, songs, symbols ( ...) in spaces where the visible and the invisible constitute legitimate connected entities.
