Nomcebisi Moyikwa / Unknown Assets


South Africa

Nominated for the ZKB Acknowledgement Prize and the ZKB Audience Prize

The title of Nomcebisi Moyikwa’s performance conveys a message as well as a reference. Until recently, the US police classified murders of gang members, prostitutes,  dealers  and  coloured people with «No Humans Involved». It is also the title of an essay by the political philosopher Sylvia Wynter, in which she investigates the stereotypes of skin colour and perception. Thisiswhere Moyikwa’sperformance comes in: Inspired by the afro-surrealism and the storytelling, she challenges established ways of seeing, hearing and understanding, provokes and deceives our senses, and leads us to new insights.
