Rap Joint Lagos
Curators: Nomaduma Rosa Masilela, Thiago de Paula Souza
On November 2, artist and curator Temitayo Ogunbiyi launched her new virtual playground game You Will Flow. This launch was part of a three-day program in Lagos, Nigeria, during which there was be extensive attention devoted to this uniquely designed game.
How do we learn to love each other while we are embattled on so many fronts? is a series developed by Vleeshal's nomadic curators Nomaduma Rosa Masilela and Thiago de Paula Souza.
The title for this series is borrowed from Audre Lorde, writer and activist, who penned this question in 1984 in a journal entry written while she was living in Berlin, during which time she asked a litany of incisive existential questions about finding meaning in the face of uncertainty, despair, and psychic and physical vulnerability. Nomaduma and Thiago articulate their nomadic program of 2022-2023 around this question. The devotion of Audre Lorde to create international feminist political networks of camaraderie reflects the core concerns of their program. Nomaduma and Thiago similarly ask questions of how does one teach or share, how does one survive, how does one empower others, how does one fight, how does one repair, how does one nourish, as the core foundations of their collaborative curatorial practice.
