The Incantation of the Disquieting Muse
How do 'witchery' phenomena and practices manifest within cultural, economical, political, religious and scientific spaces in Africa and beyond? This publication is a compendium to the exhibition project and public programme The Incantation of the Disquieting Muse... curated by Bonaventure Soh Bejeng Ndikung and Elena Agudio at SAVVY Contemporary, Berlin and in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut South Africa in the framework of the project African Futures. Through an exhibition and a series of 'Invocations, the project considered 'witchery' as an epistemological space and a medium of continuities between the African continent and its Diaspora. The publication includes essays by Erna Brodber, Seloua Luste Boulbina, Vladimir Lucien, Percy Mabandu, and Greg Tate a.o, and visual contributions by artists Georges Adéagbo, Haris Epaminonda, Kiluanji Kia Henda, Emeka Ogboh, Priscilla Rezende and Minnette Vari a.o.
