After the Dinner Time Talk (DTT) with Mukenge/Schellhammer, we continue our collaboration in Berlin with two events, a screening program and a record release/concert, which are part of Laboratoire Kontempo Kinzonzi and Laboratoire Kontempo Miziki (03.04.–25.06.2022).

Developed in collaboration with Acud Macht Neu (Berlin), the Kinzonzi of Laboratoire Kontempo brings together artists and researchers from Kinshasa, Berlin and other places in an analog and digital transdisciplinary experimental space in order to question the structures of power and dominant trends in contemporary international art scenes.

In the framework of the project Miziki, musicians from Kinshasa and Berlin come together to seek musical connections through conversations and performances. The focus of the Miziki program is to create a space of gathering, substituting eurocentric categorizations of classical, popular and “world” music with an open encounter and exchange in musical knowledge, collaboration, artistic research and modes of listening together.
