Thuli Gamedze : Escaping the machine

On writing about art – mind map (courtesy of Thuli Gamedze)

Inter-disciplinary artist Thuli Gamedze is a self-described ‘cultural worker’ whose practice is situated between curating and ‘the production of things’.

She is also a member of the art collective, iQhiya – a network of young, black female video and performance artists based in Cape Town and Johannesburg. In a conversation with writer Nkgopoleng Moloi, Gamedze speaks about her artistic processes, her ideas around knowledge production, the power of writing and what she terms ‘the hidden curriculum’.

This conversation was published in partnership with The Art Momentum in April 2019.
