Archive is not about Nostalgia, but rather it is a tool to connect the missing links of the past to the multiple possibilities for the future. The current debates on restitution open a gap that requires research and re-appropriation of images that have been silenced and disconnected from their lineage. Thus, engaging artistically with images and sounds of our past is a formula to help us design a new grammar in order to revisit and re-write the history from a Southern perspective.

The program included brainstorm sessions, public talks, screening, performances and exhibitions.

In collaboration with RAW Material Company, Kenu- le LAB’Oratoire des Imaginaires and Centre Yennenga.
