Simnikiwe Buhlungu

Tutor year 4

Interested in knowledge production[s] — how it is produced, by whom and how it is disseminated — Buhlungu locates socio-historical and everyday phenomena by navigating these questions and their inexhaustible potential answers via research based methodologies. Through this, she maps points of cognisance which situate various layers of awareness as reverberated ecologies.

Recent contributions include The Milk of Dreams, the 59th Venice Biennale (Venice, Italy); A Lasting Truth Is Change, Van Abbe Museum (Eindhoven, The Netherlands), Intimacy in the Apocalyptic Phase residency at Dar Yusef Nasri Jacir for Art and Research (Bethlehem, Palestine) and the debut solo exhibition, *dissonated underings [hic!], after-happenings and khuayarings (sithi “ahhhh!”), Kunsthalle Bern (Bern, Switzerland).
