About the organisation
Chimurenga, a pan-African platform of writing, art and politics, was founded by Ntone Edjabe in 2002. Drawing together a myriad of voices from across Africa and the diaspora, Chimurenga’s outputs include a journal of culture, art and politics of the same name (Chimurenga Magazine); a quarterly broadsheet called The Chronic; the Chimurenga Library – an online resource of collected independent pan-African periodicals and personal books; the African Cities Reader – a biennial publication of urban life, Africa-style; and the Pan African Space Station.
An initiative of the Cape Town-based collective, Chimurenga, the Pan African Space Station (PASS) is a live radio studio and innovative platform for free ideas and political reflection about Africa by Africans. The aim of these projects is not just to produce new knowledge but rather to express the intensities of our world, to capture those forces and to take action. This requires a stretching of the boundaries, for unless the form and content of what exists is challenged then the original colonised form is merely reproduced. Chimurenga proposes not only a new set of questions but also its own set of tools; new practices and methodologies that allow them to engage the lines of flight, of fragility, the precariousness, as well as joy, creativity and beauty that defines contemporary African life.
Chimurenga are participating in Shapes of Knowledge at Monash University Museum of Art, 9 February – 13 April 2018.
