Moderated by Lucrezia Cippitelli (Artistic director of Atelier Picha, co-curator of Lubumbashi Biennale, co-director of ArtHub)
Introduced by Chiara Figone
The talk will introduce Georges Senga’s research in Rome, as fellow of Villa Medici, disclosing his researches and residencies in Europe and Congo and his active involvement in the establishment of Picha / Lubumbashi Biennale. The talk will be hosted by Archive, which will publish the artist’s book, "Comment un petit chasseur païen devient prêtre catholique", conceived by Senga as an experimental editorial object which mixes documentation, archival material, original pictures and literary fiction to narrate the story of Bonaventure Manono and his travels between Africa and Europe in the moment of decolonization.
