Baudouin Mouanda @ Gasworks

From the series La Sapologie (2008) - Baudouin Mouanda

Brazzaville-based photographer Baudouin Mouanda presents his first UK solo show at Gasworks this summer, following his residency at Deveron Arts in Scotland. Mouanda’s photographs reflect on the collision between Congolese urban subcultures and global market forces, and revel in the fascinating and often flamboyant cultural self-expressions that emerge as a result. The works on show here feature the famously snappy Sapeurs (above), as well as everyday scenes and hip-hop culture from Libreville and Brazzaville.

There is a talk about the exhibition by Jennifer Bajorek, Senior Lecturer in Cultural Studies at Goldsmiths, on 17th September at 2pm – further details here
