Paul Maheke’s work is grounded in emancipatory and decolonial thought with an emphasis on cultural identities and new subjectivities. His current research focuses – through performance, video, installation, sculpture – on the body as both an archive and a territory.
The artist will be in conversation with curator Franziska Sophie Wildförster about his new commission “Letter to a Barn Owl” at Kevin Space.
