About the show
Kodwo Eshun and Angalika Sagar of The Otolith Collective narrate a tour of The Chimurenga Library at The Showroom.
For their first UK presentation, Chimurenga infiltrate The Showroom’s building in the form of The Chimurenga Library, inserting themselves into the existing frameworks, functions and structures of the space without displacing its everyday activities. Founded by Ntone Edjabe in 2002, Chimurenga (a Shona word that loosely translates as ‘struggle for freedom’) is at the centre of vibrant new cultural projection across Africa, which includes championing new music, literature and visual arts.
