In conjunction with their current exhibition of figurative Black art, “When We See Us,” the Kunstmuseum Basel | Gegenwart is offering a series of workshops entitled “Dialogue Sessions” that makes the diverse perspectives of the Black and African diaspora in Switzerland visible. The workshops use artworks and themes from the exhibition to look beyond conventional notions of culture and identity.
On this afternoon, there will be an English-language workshop entitled “The Functional Art Within Community” with artist and designer Kwaku Opoku, who leads a conversation centered around the intersection of art and community. The session will closely examine instances where necessities sculpted African ancestral artistic practices, seamlessly integrating functionality, and shaping what we now recognize as art.
