Régis Samba-Kounzi's work oscillates between autobiographical narrative, aesthetic research and political approach.
His photos evoke the visibility of sexual and gender minorities - particularly in French-speaking Africa - and, in particular, in Congo-Kinshasa. All his work is deeply marked by the fight against HIV/AIDS, in particular and more generally by the fight against dehumanization.
This webinar is born out of the need to share his artistic approach and to exchange with people who have participated in the Lolendo series, photos from which can be found in the Beyond the Binary exhibition at Pitt Rivers Museum (June 2021-March 2022).
This webinar is an opportunity to discuss the experience of Congolese LGBTIQ+ people and to give voice to their struggle for dignity.
This event will be delivered in French with live subtitles generated in English.
