Dear friends and colleagues, near and far
Held at Gallery 44AD in the centre of Bath, the exhibition brings together images, music and video installations made in collaboration with people and organisations in west Namibia.
It will be a contemplative space where the themes of sustainability, identity and displacement weaving through our research are evoked in registers beyond academic critique.
We will also be hosting a virtual version of the exhibition – please come and visit! For those in Namibia, from 2018 we’ll be reconvening the exhibition in Windhoek and beyond. We hope to see you in one or more of these spaces.

In the image above, a Damara / ≠Nūkhoen woman walks through the landscape at Sorris-Sorris, west Namibia. Her voluminous dress echoes those worn by European
missionaries in the 1800s, signalling the complex and hybrid histories enacted in this arid African land.
