2023-02-20 | Resident Jean Katambayi Mukendi and Fellow Georges Senga

safda adf afs Thami Mnyele Award winner and current resident Jean Katambayi Mukendi and our fellow Georgers Senga, as members of transnational artist collective On-Trade-Off, are participating in the group exhibition Charging Myths at Framer Framed.

The artist led research of On-Trade-Off was sparked by the large-scale mining of lithium in Manono, DRC. A site of historical extractivism, Manono has also become swept up in the race for green energy as lithium has become a valuable material for electrical technology. The members of On-Trade-Off created a collaborative platform for the exchange of trans-disciplinary knowledge in order to investigate how technological innovation has become dependent on natural resources, following chains of value across the globe.

On-Trade-Off is initiated by Picha Art (Lubumbashi, DRC) and Enough Room For Space (Brussels, BE).

It is the second time we work with the transnational artist collective On-Trade-Off and their long-term research project investigating the mining culture of Manono, the Democratic republic of the Congo (DCR). In summer 2019, George Senga received the Thami Mnyele Foundation Award to work on an exhibition with Cargo in Context Amsterdam On-Trade-Off: The Weight of Wonders.

The exhibition is a co-production of Framer Framed and Z33 .

Join us for the opening on 23rd of February, at 7 pm.
