Art, film, party: let yourself be moved by the power of art and music in the resistance against injustice during the apartheid era and for global justice today. On April 23rd, the Kunsthaus in cooperation with EPIZ (Entwicklungspolitisches Informationszentrum Göttingen) organizes an action evening around South Africa.
Starting at 5 pm, an extensive program awaits you:
5 pm Art exhibition “From South Africa”
Santu Mofokeng, William Kentridge, Banele Khoza. Guided tour of the exhibition. (Kunsthaus)
6 pm Film screening “AMANDLA!”
Documentary (2002, OV) about the role of music in the resistance against apartheid. Discussion afterwards. (Kunsthaus)
8 pm Snack and Schnack
South African food and wine bar “trink!ich”. (Kunsthaus)
From 9:30 pm South African Music-Party at Monro’s Park.
80ties / 90ties Hip Hop, Boogie, Kwaito, Bubblegum with DJ Häppy/Vinyl Reserve. (Monro’s Park)
The moving documentary film “Amandla!” (2002, OV English, 99 min., Lee Hirsch, South Africa, FSK 12) beams us back to the time of the struggle for freedom in South Africa. The story of the resistance is told through music. Music that was forbidden to blacks under the apartheid regime. Today, many of these songs have become national anthems. “Amandla!” translates to power or strength and reminds us of our duty to resist injustice worldwide together.
South African Music Party at Monro’s Park
Hip hop, boogie, kwaito, bubblegum … DJ Häppy/Vinyl Reserve will be spinning music rarities from a South African radio station on original vinyl. Sound of the 80s and 90s will pull us from the chairs to the dance floor. Monro’s Park is located at Hospitalstraße 29, 37073 Göttingen.
The entrance is free. We ask for prior registration via Anja Belz/EPIZ: 0551 487141, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The current hygiene rules apply. Donations will go to Doctors without Borders.
