Curator Aude Christel Mgba is a nominee in the category Curating as Unearthing, mentored by Koyo Kouoh. Her project encompasses an itinerant independent institution, whose first iteration is titled Ne touche pas à MON 237.
The institution aims to present all the social differences and diversity that can exist within a locality, and which are usually rendered invisible by building a national identity.
This institution will aim to create space(s) in which one feels more human, and where belonging is about the struggles and battles of everyday life. It will also be a space for reflecting on the beauty of diversity and differences. In its first chapter, this institution will temporarily inhabit the spaces of a building in Douala, Cameroon, to host events, performances, screenings, talks, exhibitions, concerts, parties, and more.
At the digital Forecast Forum, she invites the public to enter the temporary digital space Water na Water, which will feature a reading by artist and writer Chantal Edie (download as pdf-file), and a video work by artist Em’kal Eyongakpa.
