Berlin – Lagos 2018: On exchange, mobility and heritage
16-22 November 2018
Gallery Wedding, Berlin

{{{thirdspace(d)out}}} was written, produced and recorded live at Gallery Wedding as part of Jumoke Adeyanju’s Berlin-Lagos residency. 

Jumoke Adeyanju developed the concept of {{{thirdspace(d)out}}} as a one-day, multimedia performance series during her stay in Lagos. She combines live painting (Thomias Radin), live writing (Candice Nembhard), music (Jack Mensah) and dance (Thomias Radin & Jumoke Adeyanju) to explore the many stages and dimensions of diasporic nostalgia, postcolonial transformative healing and resurrection of lost memories.

{{{thirdspace(d)out}}} includes recorded interviews and a soundscape that explore liminality, the in-between, of reciprocal memories. Adeyanju goes beyond African identity markers and focuses on African and Caribbean diaspora in the world.

Lagos – Berlin is a residency programme for young artists and curators from Berlin and Lagos initiated by the Goethe-Institut Lagos in cooperation with the Department for Art and Culture Berlin-Mitte, Galerie Wedding – Raum für zeitgenössische Kunst, ZK/U – Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik, SAVVY Contemporary and Arthouse Foundation Lagos.

With kind support of the Senate Department for Culture and Europe and the Funds »Ausstellungsvergütungen«.
