Pan African Space Station in Cairo

13 – 20 February 2017

Cape Town based roving cultural think-tank Chimurenga finds its way to Cairo in February.

They will be collaborating with Swiss curator Andrea Thal, now director of the Contemporary Image Collective based in Cairo. Chimurenga envisages an edition of their fugitive digital radio platform, the Pan African Space Station (PASS) Project, to be staged alongside PhotoCairo, a contemporary art project organised by CIC.

Part of a larger inquiry into the complexities of North/South relations within the African continent first initiated in the Arabic edition of the Chimurenga Chronic in 2015, the intervention is intended to also trigger possibilities for future triangular collaborations and inquiries connecting South Africa, Egypt and Switzerland.
