  • Sepake Angiama

    (United Kingdom/Germany)

    Sepake Angiama is a curator and educator whose interest lies in seeing what lies beneath our social and political imaginary.  What are the plates which shift beneath our feet? What are the structures that impose or interject upon our performed subjectivities? Sepake's pursuit for intelligent society is fostered in the belief that art, design, architecture, and dance permits us the opportunity to see the world from an altered perspective, to think in the 'otherwise' and to contribute to the growing need to do things differently. While in her position as Head of Education, documenta 14 she initiated the project Under the Mango Tree: Sites of Learning in cooperation with ifa (Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen) which gathers artist-led spaces, libraries, and schools interested in unfolding discourses around decolonizing education practices that destabilize the European canon, through examining alternative epistemologies, notions of unlearning and indigenous knowledge. Previously she was the Head of Education for Manifesta 10 hosted by the Hermitage Museum, Saint Petersburg, a fellow for BAK, Utrecht (basis voor actuele kunst) where she addressed through her research, Her Imaginary, how science fiction and feminism may harness the perfect tools for capturing a pedagogy of political and social imagination. Currently, Sepake is one of the curators for the Chicago Architecture Biennial to take place in 2019 and an advisor for V-A-C Foundation.
