Virtual Gallery Tours

Home » Virtual Gallery Tours


We premiered a new format in 2020: the Virtual Gallery Tour, which took place in October and November 2020 together with the German Embassy Kampala. The virtual event series means to foster visual arts collaboration between Germany and Uganda while enhancing contextual exchange between audience and speakers though the theme always relates to the presenting artists’ duo. Each session specifically invites upcoming and established visual artists in East Africa and Germany as well as addresses corresponding associations, networks and art schools to become part of the live event and to engage themselves within the discussion. The event programme consists of a video of each artists’ creative space/ studio in Germany and Uganda (the “virtual tour”) and was be followed by a curated online conversation via Facebook Live/ ZOOM. In October, the mixed media artists Xenson and Syowia Kyambi met virtually and talked about ‘Entanglement and Politics’. November’s Virtual Gallery Tour brought together Barbara Caveng and Pamela Enyonu to discuss art as re-narrative of femininity and beauty identities in context of their works. Robinah Nansubuga moderated both events.
