Sleep in Witness
Sleep in Witness traces the intangible world of dreams as a space of learning where extraordinary, overlooked and discredited places of knowledge are illuminated. The exhibition includes two new installations, Zinodaka 2022 and Ntabamanzi 2022, along with the video Gathering 2019. Gqunta examines the enclosures imposed upon African knowledge systems and sees this deprival as a symptom of colonial history and conquest. She positions dreams as a response to this curtailment and a space from which new languages, wisdoms and information for living emerge.

We are proud to announce Cevdet Erek’s participation with a new installation, commissioned by Manifesta 14
Cevdet Erek presents ‘Brutal Times’ at Manifesta 14, Pristina, an immersive light and sound installation at the former publishing house Rilindja, which is an icon of brutalist architecture. It was designed by Georgi Konsantinovski and built in the 1970s to host Kosovo’s first publishing house, Rilindja Press Palace. Most recently, it hosted a series of electronic dance music events organised by the Hapësira collective, who have advocated for the site to be protected and transformed into a multidisciplinary cultural space. In ‘Brutal Times’, Cevdet Erek responds to the political turbulence underlying the many shifts in Rilindja’s function, identity and appearance.
