This summer, Thami Mnyele Foundation alumni Georges Senga prepared his contribution for the exhibition "On-Trade-Off: The Weight of Wonders”. The exhibition is now on show at Cargo in Context and Vlaams Cultuurhuis de Brakke Grond, 15 November - 21 December 2019.
On-Trade-Off is a long-term artistic research project by an international group of artists, filmmakers and researchers, that want to bring attention to the ecological and economic implications of the extraction and processing of lithium, the most important natural resource for the world-wide production of "green" energy. In the West, lithium is presented as a major step in the production of a green economy, while the burdens for the local population, where lithium is extracted, are neglected.
There will also be public programs at Cargo in Context and Brakke Grond.
