Sandra Mujinga (*1989, Goma /Democratic Republic of Congo) is a Congolese-Norwegian artist and musician working in Oslo and Berlin. In 2021 she received the prize of the Neue Nationalgalerie Berlin, and in 2022 she attended the 59th Venice Biennale. Mujinga uses a wide variety of media such as text, video, performance and dance and deals with themes such as identity, queer-feminist issues and historical-futuristic fictions, which are quite literally interwoven in her sculptural works in particular.

Sandra Mujinga conceived the installation "Fleeting Home" especially for the large terrace of the MdbK. The space, framed by huge glass surfaces, will be populated by monumental structures made of metal and woven fabric that look like a group of primordial organisms in motion. These messengers from another world fleetingly brush against us on their journey, it seems, only to leave us with existential questions about our own species and its future.

As in earlier works, Mujinga draws strong inspiration from the Afrofuturist science fiction genre (such as the stories of Octavia E. Butler). At the same time, she engages with concepts of posthumanism, that is, a speculative and political-social view that rethinks the relationship of humans to their environment. As an interface of technology, human and other organisms, Mujinga's position can also be understood as a design of alternative worlds (worldbuilding).

The opening will take place on 29 November 2023, 6 pm.
