'Tuna Kiwango?' Edition

(Part of the ‘Am I African Enough’ Collection)​

As a part of the collection, this edition consists of works that seek to show the faces behind the headlines on/in Africa. The artist also designed the newspapers to include 6 articles that shed light, criticise and educate about the continent, looking at different topics that unfortunately most of the world has intentionally chosen to ignore or twist about us!
 
(The ‘Am I African Enough?’ Collection? is a series of works where I question my African Identity as a born and bred Kenyan currently living in Germany. What is this “Africaness” I identify as? What truly makes me Kenyan? What makes me African enough?)
