Creating a dynamic between the cities
What connects Kinshasa and Leipzig? What are the mutual perceptions? Through the project Lipzkin existing connections between Kinshasa and Leipzig will be made visible and a new dialogue will be initiated. In preparation for the exhibition "Megalopolis #1 – Stimmen aus Kinshasa", which runs from December 1st, 2018 to March 31, 2019, people from Kinshasa and Leipzig are invited to work together. The Echo-Room in the GRASSI Museum for Ethnology in Leipzig will enable a creative exchange while reducing exoticism, prejudice and distance on both sides. The Echo-Room serves as an open space for artists, students, researchers and those who want to help bring Kinshasa and Leipzig closer together. Joint art projects, co-operations, research or reflections on history, politics and economy can be developed and contribute to a lively exhibition. The Echo-Room can be used for installations, workshops or film screenings and offers an ideal opportunity to realize visions and bring a piece of Kinshasa to Leipzig.
