Visual artist


Nnenna Onuoha is a Ghanaian-Nigerian scholar and moving-image artist based in Berlin, Germany. Her research explores monumental silences surrounding the histories and afterlives of colonialism across West Africa, Europe and the United States. At its core, her work asks: How do we remember, which pasts do we choose to perform, and why? Centering Afrodiasporic voices, her practice revolves around processes of collective re-membering: putting the past together limb by limb. A second strand of her work focuses on archiving Black experience in the present to understand how, amidst all of this, we practice care and repair for each other. Nnenna’s work has shown at alpha nova & galerie futura, Galerie im Turm, the Brücke-museum, and the KW Institute for Contemporary Art. She is currently a doctoral researcher in Media Anthropology at Harvard University, and Global History at the University of Potsdam.
