In this summer, Georges Senga received the Thami Mnyele Foundation Award, to establish a project with Cargo in Context "On-Trade-Off, Weight of Wonders"  2019/11/15 to 2019/12/21.

Participating artists: Sammy Baloji (DRC), Marjolijn Dijkman (NL), Maarten van den Eynde (BE), Jean Katambayi (DRC), Musasa (DRC), Daddy Tshikaya (DRC) and Georges Senga (DRC).


Georges Senga was born in 1983 in Lubumbashi Congo.

He obtained a degree in language and business sciences at the University of Lubumbashi 2009. Already a year earlier, he began his work as a photographer. During the Biennial of Lubumbashi "Rencontres Picha", he took part in a workshop of the Brussels photographer Marie-Françoise Plissart. As a result of this experiment, Georges spent six months working on a project on Katanga's urban landscape entitled "My new ceilings".

In 2009, he won the special prize for the second edition of the Africa Photo Contest of Tarifa (Spain). That same year, he exhibited at the French Cultural Center of Lubumbashi. In 2010, he worked on a series around forms of what the photographer sees through abandoned objects. The curator Simon Djami for the Biennale of Lubumbashi selected this series entitled "Imprints" in 2010. The following year this series was presented in Lubumbashi, Tarifa, Nairobi and Bamako. From 2011 to 2013 Georges participated in a "Master Class" program organized by the Goethe Institute of Johannesburg in different cities of Africa (Bamako, Lagos and Lubumbashi). During this period of the new series "A life after death" and "Kadogos" were realized.


Thami Mnyele Foundation alumni Neo Matloga (South Africa) will participate in Unseen Amsterdam 2019
20.09.2019 - 22.09.2019

On the vast, charcoal and ink wash stages, Matloga’s cast of characters play out every-day dramas, experiencing the struggles and consolations of desire and intimacy. Above all, the people in his canvases are as he says, ‘moral agents’, however much socio-economic and political conditions shape life outside (and, indeed, inside) the four walls of their homes.

Thami Mnyele Foundation alumni Option Dzikamai Nyahunzvi (Zimbabwe) presents his drawings 'Zviyera Yera (taboos)'  as part of the exhibition 'Helende Kracht' in museum voor Volkenkunde in Leiden till 5 January 2020.

The drawings 'Zviyera Yera (taboos)' show the relationship between the observable world and the world of the ancestors.
