In some parts of our continent more than others, the way artists approach archival work can have severe implications for their relationship with the State. This session explores these and other ‘issues of heritage’, and the intersection between fact and fiction in artistic research. We consider ‘archives of the future’ and the role of gender in processes of documentation.

Charmaine Chitate – Interdisciplinary artist working with computer-based media (Zimbabwe)
Sana Ginwalla – Zambia-born photographer, curator, and writer interested in politics of identity, home and belonging.

Beyond Borders is a four-part public webinar series where creative practitioners, scholars and activists reflect on and project towards an even more networked, mobile, supported and supporting Southern African arts sector. It is produced and co-conceptualized by The National Arts Festival in association with the Johannesburg office of Pro Helvetia, the Swiss Arts Council. The webinar series is convened in the context of the conclusion of the more than decade-long collaboration between Pro Helvetia Johannesburg and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, enabling mobility, exchange and collaboration among arts practitioners and organisations in the Southern African region.
